I have over 20 years experience with systems-oriented software like operating systems, networking, and databases. I have also been involved with network and computer administration and configuration. I have have also taught these subjects at a four year college.
I would never be mistaken for a serious, artistic web developer, but I've done a few sites in my day. I came to Django after using Python since before Python 1.0. I always said that Rails could have been done in Python, and Django is proof of that - only better.
