October 2018 Review

In October, I doubled-down on efforts to write more for both the Pinax Project as well as for Eldarion. Here is a summary of what I wrote.

Cash Opening Doors

Cash has now decided he can open doors at will.

Bernie Sanders and Christian Progressivism

And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.” Luke 3:11 (ESV)

The Exemplar of Fatherhood

I have been blessed beyond measure by my father, Thomas Altman. Many of the lessons learned from his wisdom are only now being fully appreciated as my fatherhood experience is in its infancy.

Donated django-logicaldelete to Pinax

Six years ago, I created a simple Django app to handle logical deletion of records. Today, I donated this app to Pinax.

Proud of Benjamin

Our oldest, Benjamin, finished off his final year of elementary school with a bang, winning the honor of Elementary Student of the Year. But that is not why I am so proud of him.

2014 Year End Review

This year has been an incredible one and I wanted to take some time today to reflect on all that has happened.

Breaking the Log Jam

So it's been far too long since I have posted anything to this blog. I have been better at times about consistently posting and when I do subsequent posts become easier to write. I have posted a bit over on the Eldarion blog, but even there I haven't gotten into a good rhythm yet.

SendGrid Events and Eldarion Open Source

Yesterday, I blogged about one of our new open source Django apps, django-sendgrid- events. It's a small app, in terms of lines of code and/or complexity, but I think it opens up a ton of potential in things you can do for users of your site.

Easily Add Stripe Payments to your Django Site

Earlier today I blogged over on Eldarion's site about how you can easily add Stripe payments to your website with a new app that we have developed and open-sourced under the BSD license.
