Deploying, At An Unusual Scale

Wednesday, June 8th



As a Python hosting startup, sees a lot of Django. Andrew will take you through the various parts of the stack - from the custom load balancer, to the redis proxy, to how we run nginx and gunicorn, and show you some of our code, while he points out some of the trickier parts of maintaining hundreds of Django installations on just a few machines.




About Andrew Godwin

Andrew is a long-time Python coder, having started using the language somewhere around 2005 (after escaping from the land of PHP 4). He is a core committer on the Django project, the maintainer of several open-source libraries (including South, the leading Django migrations framework), and has been running his own servers since his early teens.

When he's not taunting the kernel and echoing random things into /sys, Andrew is one of the two co-founders of, the Python hosting startup. He also enjoys cheese, mountains, and talking about himself in the third person.
