Let me give you a quick update about a new feature that made it to Leeroys master branch. Deployment. You can now specify a script that will run after a build for a branch was successful. Initially I planned to focus on deployment when working on version 2 or a late 1.x release - for me this is a scary feature and I would have preferred to focus on testing right now. But at FlightCar we decided we want to start leveraging continuous deployment and so I began to work it.
Let us talk about drunken pandas, sake and why I am trying to tie a static site generator to a SQL database and a Django process. There are actually two simple reasons: The first one is that I want more comfort while blogging without losing the advantages of drupan. The second one is that I hope to enable more people to use a static site generator and own their content without losing any comfort or having to put up with managing a small, likely virtual, server.
Leeroy CI is evolving just fine and in the timeframe I expected it to move forward. I have not seen any problems in production and it is already helping some developers and startups with automated builds and tests and harassing them to make sure all tests are passing before merging a pull request.

It is the time of the year where I start talking about Django and Ruby on Rails.

A month ago Dyson D'Souza from PacktPub approached me asking if I would be interested in reviewing Django Essentials. I am using Django for some time now - somewhen pre 0.96, I remember the 0.96 release for some reason, I think it was the length of the release cycle but I am not sure anymore - and I really wanted to see how the introduction resources changed, so this was a good chance.
