Ep. 101 – Open Sourcerer of Django (Jacob Kaplan-Moss)

Code Newbie,

Originally posted on Code Newbie

Jacob Kaplan-Moss is often credited for co-creating Django, one of the most popular web frameworks written in python. But that’s not exactly true. He’s also given credit for being an amazing developer. But that’s not very accurate either. Jacob tells us the true story of Django’s creation, why he calls himself a mediocre programmer, and unpacks the concept of the talent myth.
