Gerbi CMS
Posted on 2012-04-26.

Gerbi CMS (nee django-page-cms) is a multilingual content management system written in Python and based on the Django web framework. It's currently my favourite CMS software and use it for a number of web sites I administer.

I'll be giving a talk about Gerbi CMS at the next OCLUG and OPAG meetings resembling this article.

Catching up on some more old business: here are the slides from the Python 2 and Python 3 talk I gave at last month's OCLUG meeting.

I am also preparing some Python tutorials for the upcoming 2011 Linux Symposium in Ottawa June 13-15. Hope you can make it.

IPv6Summit Organizers
IPv6 Summit Summary link
Posted on 2011-05-14.

I'm late with this update (busy catching up on other work that I neglected last month) but I must report that the Ottawa IPv6 Summit went far better than I had hoped: Great turn-out, great venue, great talks and great food.

Pictures are now available from Richard Guy Briggs and we're working on putting the talk videos online with the help of ISI Global Webcasting.

The space at Telfer School of Management was ideal, and the Telfer volunteers got everyone registered helped everything run really smoothly all day.

It was tons of work, but I look forward to doing it again. Maybe I'll even catch more than a couple talks in person next time.

Ottawa IPv6 Summit Overflow link
Posted on 2011-04-27.

Response to the Ottawa IPv6 Summit has been amazing. Yesterday we completely sold out our venue and had to shut down registrations. We just can't fit any more people in the room with the keynote talk first thing in the morning.

We do still have some room after the keynote though, and if you don't mind skipping the first talk you can now register for one of the overflow spots we have just made available.

Hope to see you on Friday.

Registration for the Ottawa IPv6 Summit has just opened. Also if you want to present a talk (in particular something suitable for the business/management stream) there is still some time to submit a proposal.

The summit will be held Friday April 29 in downtown Ottawa at the new Desmarais building in the University of Ottawa campus. There will be some great talks, a good lunch, fast wireless, power at every seat and plenty of interesting people. I'll post again when the schedule is available.

The conference is being organized by a small group of volunteers, including myself. If your company is willing to sponsor the event please contact the Ottawa IPv6 Summit. The money will go directly into making the conference better for everyone attending.

Posted on 2008-09-06, last modified 2008-09-14.

This is a recording of the presentation I gave to the Ottawa Canada Linux Users Group (OCLUG) on September 2 about their Django-based web site. I covered the server and virtualhost configuration for OCLUG, and two new features recently added to the site. I also presented some general information about how Django handles requests and discussed some of the code for the new features.
