Here’s a second run of that presentation, recorded at the Mozilla offices (video credit: Rainer Cvillink).
It is a high-level overview of what the playdoh project is and what we do to write scalable web applications, that should be understandable even for nontechnical folks who would like to learn about the project. In the future, we’ll follow up with more technical, detailed posts on certain aspects of the framework.
Quick summary: In an effort to standardize our web development platform across our various projects, Mozilla created the playdoh project. Playdoh is a web application template consisting of Django, plus additional libraries and documentation. Check out the (work in progress) features list, or the full documentation. The source code is available on github, and if you have any questions, feel free to step by #webdev on the Mozilla IRC network.
