Two new articles

I've put up two new articles -- What is WSGI? An Introduction and Testing WSGI applications with twill -- a (very) brief intro. Both were written for today's SoCal PIGgies meeting.

In the article on testing WSGI applications with twill, I have a doctest example that pretty stubbornly won't work. I hereby publicly appeal to Grig to get it to work ;).

Legal issues with "releasing software into the wild"

A useful reference.

And the moral of the story is...

In this very interesting piece on a company moving to Linux, the lesson was: test. The company had the confidence to switch deployment platforms -- and not just once but twice -- largely because they had a complete testing setup. Or at least that's what I took away from it ;).
