Hi everyone,
 I am doing some market research for my startup. I'm interested in learning
about how people are using Django in production today, particularly for
applications (as opposed to content management). If you are, could you take
a few minutes to answer the questions below, either to the list or directly
to me? Any additional explanations are also appreciated. If I get a lot of
private responses, I'll summarize to the list (unless you don't want to be
in the summary). Thank you very much for your help!
