Step2: decide the scope
Posted by Uberto Barbini on March 10, 2008
It has taken some time, but finally I decided which kind of site I want to create.
It’ll be an experiment, half on technology side and half on social-web side.
So for the technology I already made the main choices:
Django -> the more I’m using it the more I like it.
PostgreSQL -> Although I knew it, I was surprised at Fosdem to see which level of speed and reliability it has archived lately. I don’t need to use sqllite anymore for tests. At least for the moment.
Rest architecture -> I bought this book at Fosdem because I was intrigued by a (not so good) lecture on Rest. I’m still not sure if there is some value in being 100% RESTful, but definitely most of the suggestions are very good indeed.
As for the content side, I have almost chosen a name, following the immortal guidelines of “must be cheap, can be lame”.
