Office hours

I may even no longer agree with this, or might approach things differently if I wrote this post today. I rarely edit posts after writing them, but if I have there'll be a note at the bottom about what I changed and why.

Frank and I held our first Revsys “office hours” this past Friday, November 5th. We’ve taken the IRC transcript, organized and cleaned it up a bit, and posted it online for those who couldn’t make it.

We had a great time with this, and will certainly be doing it again in the future. If you’d like to hear about future office hours, follow @revsys on Twitter.

Also, a shameless plug: if you’d like a chance to ask questions like this in person, you might want to attend one of my Django classes in LA and Boston next month.
