"Vendor lock-in"? They wish. All these vendors are locked in here with ME. --Forrest Brazeal

Still working on optimizing fetching stuff from the database for django-cast. Did some music stuff and spent a lot of time outside.

  • Software Design by Example | This by example idea is probably great. How do you become an expert on literature? Probably by reading a lot of it. Maybe it's the same with software...
  • Pydon'ts | Skipped a bit over it, seems to be ok

Architecture is a property of a system, not a description of its intended design --Stefan Tilkov

Had a week off, yay! Spent most of the time visiting museums, swimming pools and playgrounds. For open source, I'm still working on a performance-oriented refactoring of django-cast. This is much harder than expected. It's basically about being able to generate the html for all the performance critical pages like blog index, feed and post detail from a cachable data representation (serializable Python dict for example).

As a rule, software systems do not work well until they have been used, and have failed repeatedly, in real applications. — Dave Parnas

Last week working on SSO using django-saml2-auth. Didn't get much done besides work because the kids were sick and we were traveling a lot. Fixed a small bug in the post preview for django-cast. After I heard the latest core.py episode where Łukasz Langa asked if maybe someone could try to update python.org to a newer version of Django, I thought, ok, maybe I'll give it a try. But Jacob already submitted a PR 🚀, so I did a review instead. I also spent some time outside, the cherry trees over here are in bloom 🌸.
