None of us have posted anything in a few days, so here's a little status report on the "sandysback" project. This is for all you folks who aren't following the mailing list religiously.
We're trying to decide on our platform. The Python language is pretty much a given, and I'm looking forward to working on a real project with it. But, after that, it gets a little hazy. Google App Engine is a candidate, but Django/MySQL is a possibility too. We're also compiling a list of important features that our first release has to include. We then need to prioritize that list and assign milestones.
So where's the code? Where's the new Sandy? Please be patient. We're taking planning very seriously on this project. We have to if we're going to deliver an application that can scale to the hundreds (if not thousands) of passionate Sandy refugees out there.
I expect we'll be designing a database schema this week, and we'll probably start architecting everything else later this week or next weekend. We probably wont have anything usable until the first of the year at the very earliest. Again, we don't want to rush this.
Thanks for your interest!
Thanks for your patience!
And, most of all, thanks for believing in us!
