Guest Post: Steve Holden on Python-in-the-Cloud and Amazon

This week in Washington, D.C., DjangoCon, the official conference session of The Django Software Foundation (DSF) took place. The conference, themed "the Django community and ecosystem," featured tutorials, two tracks of talks over three days, lightning talks and a development sprint on topics such as creating dynamic applications, debugging live python web apps, internationalization, PostgreSQL and design tips.
In conjunction with the conference, Steve Holden (shown here), Python Software Foundation chairman as well as a web technologist, instructor and consultant, delivered a guest post to us here at OStatic. Steve teaches as a course author at the O’Reilly School of Technology, and you’ll find his post on Python-in-the-cloud and Amazon here:
