Strike averted

I’m thrilled to announce we’ve hired James Bennett (a.k.a ubernostrum in #django) as World Online’s new front end developer.

About a month ago he wrote:

I’m desperately looking for someone to pay me to build something with Django, and if it doesn’t happen soon I’m just going to go on strike.

Whew — strike averted.

Seriously, though we’re extremely excited to have James joining our team, and we can’t wait to see the cool shit he’s going to build here.

Also, we’re still looking for a kick-ass Django developer (yes, we’re growing rapidly). If you, like James, want to get paid to play with Django, drop me a line.
