It is that time of year again to think about next year’s Django Software Foundation’s Board of Directors!
As you know, the Board guides the direction of the marketing, governance and outreach activities of the Django community. We provide funding, resources, and guidance to Django events on a global level. Further we provide support to the Django community with an established Code of Conduct and make decisions and enforcement recommendations for violations. We work closely with our corporate and individual members to raise funds to help support our great community.
In order for our community to continue to grow and advance the Django Web framework, we need your help. The Board of Directors consists of volunteers who are elected to one year terms. This is an excellent opportunity to help advance Django. We can’t do it without volunteers, such as yourself. For the most part, the time commitment is a few hours per month. There has been some confusion on this in the past, but anyone including current Board members, DSF Members, or the public at large can apply to the Board. It is open to all.
If you are interested in helping to support the development of Django we’d enjoy receiving your application for the Board of Directors. Please fill out the application form by Friday, November 22nd, 2019 to be considered. If it is still the 22nd of November somewhere in the world, applications will remain open.
If you have any questions about applying, the work, or the process in general please don’t hesitate to reach out via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and one of us will get back with you shortly.
Thank you for your time and we look forward to working with ...
It is that time of year again when we recognize someone from our community in memory of our friend Malcolm.
Malcolm was an early core contributor to Django and had both a huge influence and large impact on Django as we know it today. Besides being knowledgeable he was also especially friendly to new users and contributors. He exemplified what it means to be an amazing Open Source contributor. We still miss him.
The DSF Prize page summarizes the prize nicely:
The Malcolm Tredinnick Memorial Prize is a monetary prize, awarded annually, to the person who best exemplifies the spirit of Malcolm’s work - someone who welcomes, supports and nurtures newcomers; freely gives feedback and assistance to others, and helps to grow the community. The hope is that the recipient of the award will use the award stipend as a contribution to travel to a community event -- a DjangoCon, a PyCon, a sprint -- and continue in Malcolm’s footsteps.
We will take nominations until Friday, November 8th AoE and will announce the winner soon after.
Please make your nominations using this google form.
If you have any questions please reach out to the DSF Board at email@example.com.
Django 3.0 beta 1 is now available. It represents the second stage in the 3.0 release cycle and is an opportunity for you to try out the changes coming in Django 3.0.
Django 3.0 has a raft of new features which you can read about in
the in-development 3.0 release notes.
Only bugs in new features and regressions from earlier versions of Django will be
fixed between now and 3.0 final (also, translations will be updated following the
"string freeze" when the release candidate is issued). The current
release schedule calls for a release candidate in a month from now with the
final release to follow about two weeks after that around December 2. Early and often
testing from the community will help minimize the number of bugs in the release.
Updates on the release schedule schedule are available on the django-developers mailing list.
As with all beta and beta packages, this is not for production use. But
if you'd like to take some of the new features for a spin, or to help find and
fix bugs (which should be reported to the issue tracker), you can grab a
copy of the beta package from our downloads page or on PyPI.
The PGP key ID used for this release is Mariusz Felisiak: 2EF56372BA48CD1B.
In just a few weeks, from the 6th to 10th of August, the first ever pan-African PyCon will take place in Accra, Ghana.
PyCon Africa 2019 is an amazing step for the rapidly growing Python community in Africa.
Django at PyCon Africa
Django will be well represented with a Django Girls workshop, several talks, and many members of the Django Software Foundation in attendance.
Numerous DSF members have attended Python events in Africa in the past, and we're excited to see the conference come to fruition. May it be the first of many!
The DSF is one of PyCon Africa's sponsors, passing on some of the donations it has received to help with its goals of supporting community development across the world.
It's thanks to its sponsors that the event can go ahead. All the basic costs of the event are now covered and attendees from many African countries will be represented. However, the organisers are looking for further sponsorship for the financial assistance programme.
Travel, even within Africa and to a well-connected city like Accra, is expensive and difficult for many Africans. Entry visas to Ghana can cost $100-200 per person, which when combined with other expenses puts the event out of the range of a lot of potential attendees.
There's an opportunity here.
Sponsoring PyCon Africa means more people from across Africa will be able to attend, strengthening the network of the African Python community and building its expertise. We’ve already seen the results of this engagement within Python, as African Pythonistas have advanced in their careers and contributed back to the software and the community (just for example, Anna Makarudze from Zimbabwe serves on the Django Software Foundation board, as Vice President of the DSF itself).
