The Python community has been like our family. We met through the community, and many of our dearest friendships started because of the community.
This year has been a very special year for us. We wrote Two Scoops of Django, and we started a little publishing company called Two Scoops Press. We traveled throughout Spain, Poland, Italy, and Croatia, teaching and helping local user groups. Daniel gave keynote speeches at DjangoCon Europe and EuroPython. We did a few book signings and got the chance to meet many of our book's readers.
Now we are back in Southern California, settling into our new home together and getting ready to release the next edition of our first book. We couldn't have gotten to this point without you, our friends and readers.
It is because of your feedback that we've been able to improve the next edition. We've been hard at work expanding chapters and sections that you wanted to hear more about. We've been making little changes everywhere to improve clarity and help you see what's in our heads. We've been scrubbing those typos. Audrey has been drinking lots of coffee and drawing more silly Django ice cream metaphor cartoons. Daniel has been cranking up his level of mental silliness to come up with more wacky "what if X were ice cream?" code snippets.
We are so grateful to the Python community for everything. 2013 has been a year full of blessings. We can't wait to show you what we have in store for you in 2014.
