Lightning talks

See board.

DjangoSki is part conference, part sprints and part skiing in Whistler. More details at

Potential Sprint Topics

  • A web based query builder and analyzer (details to come from AndyM)
  • I love git. I own Let's make a cool git-related app or something! (If you were wondering, I was going to make a git-based code review system, but that kind of fell through)
  • More of an ad-hoc discussion type idea: Generic class-based views ( ), benefits (cutting down boilerplate code, more abstract, clean name spacing, etc...) and issues that spring up (decorators, multithreading, redirects). We use the class-based views at WWU Housing and found them to be very useful, but had to solve each of those issues ourselves and I think we did pretty good. I think Class-based generic views are interesting and useful, I would like to share WWU's experiences and solutions if other people find this topic interesting and hear other people's experiences too. - Nick Fitzgerald

Ride Sharing

If you are coming or going to DjangoSki by car, here's where you can get more people to share the ride. Parking in Whistler is a real pain (it's kinda cool that they discourage cars) so it would be nice if you are ride sharing to help contribute to parking costs too. *Note* it costs $15 a day to park at the hotel.

From or to Vancouver

  • Don't have a car would be interested in carpooling. I'm in the commercial area and happy to help pay for gas. stefan(at)tjarks(dot)de
  • I'll be heading up Monday afternoon and will have room for 2 or 3 people plus ski's etc. andy@…
  • I'll be arriving from europe in the early evening monday (6:30pm) and would love to join somebody's car, otherwise am happy to have somebody split car rental costs with me. - termie at google com

From or to Seattle

From or to Portland

Room Sharing

If you are looking for a room share to cut those costs down, add in details here.

At Legends


  • I have a room booked at the First Tracks Lodge which is directly next to the Legends and run by the same company. However, since I'm not 25 I didn't meet the min age requirements and as an agreement with them to let me stay, I told them I was just going up for the conference and that I wouldn't have anyone else in my room besides myself. They were very kind and flexible, and if someone is interested in sharing the room, go ahead and email me. I will call them and ask if it will work out, since you would presumably also be going to DjangoSki, I think they would be cool with that. Email me at fitzgen@…. - Nick Fitzgerald
    • PS: It is just a one bed room, but we could take turns on the bed and/or get a cot, etc...
  • I booked myself into AMS/UBC Whistler Lodge (~15 min walk to the Legends). It's a lodge owned by the University of British Columbia. Rooms are mainly shared and I assume it is more backpacker style but it is cheap even for none students!
