The release date of the iPad in New Zealand is on the front page of stuff. I've played with a couple now and I do think they are, clearly, the next coming of the personal computer but even so ... it's not like it's a cure for cancer or anything.
BURNING MAN SEEKS DJANGO DEVELOPERS FOR PAID CONTRACT OPPORTUNITY
The Burning Man Technology Department is seeking a Django developer or two for a paid contract gig. We need your help to get an exciting new Playa Directory ready to premiere in Black Rock City! The initial 3-month project would begin immediately and includes providing some onsite support in Black Rock City. There is the possibility for additional work in the Fall and Winter months, and maybe even longer.
Bay Area location is not required, but is preferred. This position does require you to go to Burning Man 2010! There will be work on the playa, but plenty of time for fun too!
If you are an experienced Django pony rider and savvy developer, a collaborative team player, and committed to creating an excellent user experience for our friends in BRC as well as year-round website visitors, then we would like to hear from you! Please send a resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 15, 2010.
Previous next big things include development of the capture and intermediate compression technology in iShowU-HD; design and implementation of a small advertising network; the refinancing, technical direction, and a lot of the donkey work for Virtual Katy; technical direction, project management and (again) donkey work for VoiceQ; creating code and intellectual property around load balancing that was acquired by Allied Telesis; and the research and an implementation of the h.264 video compression protocol.
