We attended DjangoCon 2013 in Warsaw, Poland, last week. A great experience. Godd vibes, connections and shared knowledge for us to keep working with Django. This framework and Plone, that great open CMS, are the main tools we use in CodeSyntax to develop web projects. Each conference that we attend confirms that we chose technologies well :-)

We are two programmers from CodeSyntax here the DjangoCon in Warsaw, happy to be in this circus (yes, we are in a tent!). These are some of our notes from Day 1.
What is trending in Basque in Twitter? Twitter itself has not the answer. Although in the latest city deployment of Twitter trend locations there is Bilbao there (main Basque city), still it's not a good measure of our community. As a matter of fact, looks like Twitter only treats TT's geographically, not by language. Well, we built that tool for Basque: Umap.eu, tracking Basque trends, content and users in Twitter.
It's been three weeks since we launched Niagarank.es, a news aggregator for Spain. Yesterday, I had the chance to speak about it at a the Master in Digital Journalism at IE Business School in Madrid, invited by professor Enrique Dans. Here's the presentation and some lines about Niagarank.
From January 24 to 27, I've come to Munich (Germany) to participate in the Plone Wine and Beer Sprint, organized simultaneously in Cape Town (South Africa) and Munich.
The Euskarabildua conference recently held in Donostia (the Basque Country) was an occasion to talk about Lesser Used Languages and technology. Inspiring talks by Davyth Hicks from the Eurolang network and Albert Cuesta from Catalonia.
Back from the Plone Conference, here there are, the highlights of the 2012 meeting in Arnhem. Pyramid the framework, the advancement of Deco, tools for building strong frontpages for Plone websites, and the always interesting lightning talks.
CodeSyntax will be at this year's Plone Conference. It's the 6th annual meeting that we attend, after the Ploneconf's in Napoli, Washington, Budapest, Bristol and last year's at San Francisco. The 2012 Ploneconf will be held at Arnhem, the Netherlands.
We have been working on a Twitter and Facebook based login in Plone for a project that will be published in the coming weeks. Today we have released the first beta version of both products.
Yesterday we opened two applications, two automatic news services, Nestoria News UK following the real estate news, and Noticias Kisale, about cycling in Spain. Both are based on Twitter, ranking users according to expertise in a certain area, and both are fully automated.
