I think I should mention – and I’m super happy to announce that my latest site: the Ryanair Magazine website, has finally gone live!

Just a note though – I’m not responsible for the design, but I did code the entire thing up in Django :-)

Some highlights:

  1. Amazon API integration
  2. OpenCalais API Auto-tagging
  3. Relationship ranking and scoring engine
  4. Site conversion, and HTML extraction features to deal with legacy nastyness (not sure if anyone’s seen the old site, but it was pretty horrific)

I’m terribly proud of the launch, simply because the site is a great example of how versatile and easy it is to build a complex django application. The site was ‘finished’ in two weeks with a team of two people, that’s a pretty decent development period.
