If wishes were frameworks...

A Django site.

Let's face it. Not everyone has access to clean, pragmatic frameworks.

In some parts of the world IT departments are still forcing developers to use bloated "enterprise" application servers and adhere to outdated development processes designed for an age when software development teams needed their own zip code, and agility was something only athletes and ballerinas cared about.

And in a world where shared hosting customers can wait years for their providers to install vital updates to critical packages, even independent developers aren't free to choose their own tools.

We're not going to solve this problem overnight. But we can start raising awareness now.

Even if you can't use Django, now you can show your support for change by placing one of these banners on your site.

Every click makes a difference.
