Improve S3Boto Django-Storages Performance with Custom Settings

May 13, 2013Category: Software
Django-storages is a great piece of software. It provides an uniform API for all kind of file storage backends, including Amazon's S3 . I use it for storing assets (the /static/ and /media/ ) for my django app. However, particularly with the /static/ assets, I've noticed firebug / yslow…

Deploy django application with private dependencies on dotcloud

January 28, 2013Category: Software
Update: This is an outdated entry. DotCloud went to cloudControl , which joined ExoScale These days I'm trying to deploy an application on a something quicker than my shared host ( dreamhost.com ). Not that there's anything wrong with this provider (this blog is on it), but the latency is a bit…
