Einstein repeatedly argued that there must be simplified explanations of nature, because God is not capricious or arbitrary. No such faith comforts the software engineer. --Fred Brooks

I had a lot of fun recording a podcast episode about DevOps. Then there was this month's Django Cologne user group meeting and I talked to a lot of nice people. Somebody has to build a RAG website for the Django documentation, please! The next day the Python User Group Düsseldorf met, which was also really interesting.

During the week I worked a bit on django-cast, trying to cleanly separate database access from template rendering, which is still going on and more difficult than I expected. But I got some comfort from listening to a Django Chat episode about Kraken where Çağıl talked about how they use dataclasses (or some other kind of value objects) to render their templates to avoid having database operations going on during template rendering. Seems they face similar problems over there.
