With two years of deploying Django apps to production, Randall Degges shares some of his experiences and tips this week on his blog.  After nearly 2 weeks of trying to keep his Django app's PostgreSQL database from dying, he discovers a tool that is well known in DevOps circles called Puppet:

In order to maintain your sanity, you spend a few more days researching server management tools, and discover puppet. Then...

Oh-my-god

Oh my fucking GOD!

Yes, grasshopper! You now see it: you have only begun to discover the amount of work that lays ahead. You've barely scratched the surface as to the tools, methods, and skills necessary to manage and operate even the simplest of production sites. Your work is cut out for you.  --Randall Degges


Degges goes on to encourage more leadership from Jacob Kaplan-Moss, one of the Django creators and a DevOps advocate.  Overall, Degges believes that the Django community needs a firm, opinionated set of best practices for deploying Django in order to help the framework become what it should be.  Developers will need to learn a little IT along the way for sure.  A great read for Django users or anybody who doesn't think that 'Devs' need to learn more 'Ops.'
