Our main presenter is going to be Stéphane Jolicoeur and he's going to talk about the architecture of NFB.ca, a platform with open and pythonic roots.

He is going to describe what he and his team at the National Film Board of Canada had to do in order to accommodate the massive increase in traffic that they received after deploying their new Django-powered website.

Technical Lead at the Web department of the National Film Board of Canada, Stéphane Jolicoeur is the architect and the lead implementer of the NFB.ca website.

Montréal-Python 15 is our last meeting of the summer; after a well-deserved break, we'll be back in September.
