We built and anyone who want to look at the code can find it at


Very cool website, I was impressed. In fact, it gave me some cool ideas which I’ll try and implement in my website down the track.
I like your comment about WordPress. One of the reasons why I decided to teach myself Django was because I want to make web-sites, but I don’t want to use WordPress. At the time, I wanted to learn new tech, and it was a toss up between learning the word-press loop, and PHP, or something cooler. :smile:

Good on you btw for helping out charities.

Thanks. I’m glad it can be a source of inspiration for others.

Yeah, WordPress is a really solid tool, but it’s not the best fit for everything. I think Django is a good next step up when you need more control over what an app must do.


Beautiful looking site, and quick as a grasshopper :slight_smile: Thumbs up!
