Patrick, I run a creative web firm here in Portland called Typethink and
we're a Python / Django shop primarily (we do work on other projects but
majority of our work is Django). We are, as you assumed, swamped with work
right now (not complaining!) but we can afford to take some more on as we're
expanding. We work with the most active people in the Django community. I
didn't realize that you were looking for contract developers for your Django
project, which is why I failed to contact you... my apologies. Give me a
call or drop me an email so we can chat about your needs. We'd love to help
if we can. We just moved into the US Bancorp Tower two weeks ago so if you
wanna stop by and visit our new office, let me know. All of my contact
information is in my email signature.
Take care!
