I've been working in web applications for almost five years now. My initial web work was creating a framework and application to add social networking and content management to a variety of newspaper websites. The framework is now licensable as “Bakomatic”. I now work as an independent contractor working mostly with web startups. I've been working with Django for 2+ years, submitting patches, participating in sprints, and recently, creating a bolt-on AJAX framework to Django for a future project of mine.
