How Python, TurboGears, and MongoDB are Transforming SourceForge.net (#47)

Description

How Python, TurboGears, and MongoDB are transforming SourceForge.net

Presented by Rick Copeland

In mid-2009, SourceForge embarked on a quest to modernize our websites, starting with the download (consumer) flow on SourceForge.net. A small team was tasked the rewrite, converting a site originally implemented in PHP with Python. Using a customized TurboGears as a core component, the rewrite was completed and the new site deployed in under 2 months. This talk tells the story of that rewrite and explains our new technology stack, which includes TurboGears, MongoDB, and Jinja templates.
