Do you want to know more about #django  1.8? @oxfordpython are hosting a night with core developer +Marc Tamlyn next Friday in Oxford.

With 1.8 being the next long term release and the great work the foundation, fellowship and Django girls are doing, this should be a great opportunity to catch up on whats happening in the framework and community.

If you want to know more please visit our meetup page http://www.meetup.com/oxfordpython/events/220974748/

Django peoples: We are very lucky to have +Marc Tamlyn  , one of the core #django  developers giving us an update on the new 1.8 features next Friday in Oxford. If you are close enough, you are more than welcome to join the meetup group and come along. 

This should be a really interesting insight into the latest long term release as well as getting updates on the Django foundation, fellowship program and the great work being done by Django girls.

Any questions about the event, let me know.

A lot of hard work went into the reimplementation of the Python Job Board. Thanks to all the people who made it happen.
We are happy to announce that we have successfully relaunched the PSF Python Job Board. After almost one year of development and lots of work by our volunteers and contractors, we are now live with the new Python job board system.

An interesting perspective on the 1mb rule.. 
When a new website is released for a popular or high profile brand there are two stages of reaction. The first is praise: “it's responsive!”, “it's gorgeous!”. The second is criticism: “don't work in IE9!”, “it's over 1MB!”. As is internet traditional, opinion must be bipolar and unconditional.

It's almost impossible to make a good visual website less than 1mb, you can make your codes way less than that, but at the time you create a gallery you just go far away 1mb....
