Django Stars 2015 Results

Better late than never: we summed up our results quite long ago, now it’s time to share them with the world! Here is what we reached and fulfilled in 2015th.

  • We finally launched the updated djangostars.com. We were too busy working for others, so for some time our own web site remained not that perfect. It’s still not ideal and right at the moment we’ve been working at another update. However, our Contact Us page works perfectly — do not hesitate to drop us a line if you have questions or a project to work on!

  • We started the blog — don’t forget to subscribe to it to be sure you don’t miss anything interesting.
