Django UI in 2005 vs Django UI in 2014

September 18, 2014

I stumbled across my favourite ever tech talk, the legendary Snakes and Rubies event where Django met Rails, back in 2005. One thing caught my eye while re-watching every minute of the 3-hour event: the Django Web site and the Admin Site app look almost exactly the same today than they did 9 years ago.

I don’t want to comment this in any other way but to notice that it’s quite amazing that Djangoproject.com still looks so good and I actually like using it every single day – it works really well. Way better than most newer homepages of other open source projects.

Granted, the Admin app looks a bit more dated, but not too much. And for its purpose, it too works still really well.

Wilson Miner is one kick-ass designer.

And Wilson, it’s not just a Web site. :)
