The Django Dash is coming up in a couple weekends (May 30-31) and I'm excited to be participating this year. The Django Dash is a contest for creating a new Django-based project in under 48 hours.
Defunkt and I are working on a web IRC client which will certainly be awesome. I didn't get to be part of the dash last year since Pownce was a sponsor and I haven't done any timed hacking for awhile so I'm pretty excited.
Want to join in the dash? Registration is now open.
