    by Andy McKay

    The Mozilla Addons site has traffic of over 150 million requests per month and 500 million API calls a day. This talk covers how the site was converted from PHP to Django and all the fun that entailed.

  • Bitbucket - Lessons learned

    by Jesper Noehr

    Doing a website in Django is easy, but how about building a DVCS hosting site with it? Django fits a wide variety of purposes, and was molded to suit Bitbucket's purpose while remaining (somewhat) idiomatic. This talk is about the lessons we learned in going from a few hundred users, to now over 100.000 active ones, being acquired, introducing non-Pythonistas to Django, and having to maintain and develop everything meanwhile.

  • Deploying, At An Unusual Scale

    by Andrew Godwin

    As a Python hosting startup, ep.io sees a lot of Django. Andrew will take you through the various parts of the ep.io 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.
