You're mixing up a few different things.
My point isn't that django is unpopular or that .net developers aren't
My point is that you cannot give detailed talks about developing with
django and expect a .NET developer to stay awake.
I understand that there's a goal to "introduce" django to the Israeli
web-dev community, including the people who wear suits. That's great!
There are several talks that can be given on the subject which will be
*interesting* for them. None of those talks will be interesting to
somebody who is already using Django.
If there's another goal of putting together a djangocon with a focus
on more advanced technical talks, maybe a workshop with jacob --
great! None of those talks will be interesting to somebody who has
heard about django and is curious to learn what it is about. Both
suits & .NET developers will fall asleep during such talks.
1. Have a half-day/day of talks for people new to django. Can give a
talk or two about the business case for django, success stories, etc.
If you want to draw technical people who are not new to django, offer
a workshop where we do an accelerated tutorial on-screen -- tell
people to bring their laptops, and walk them through a shortened
django tutorial. Key goal is showing them results in the space of an
hour -- they should have a blog or a twitter clone or whatever at the
end of it, and see how easy it is to Get Things Done.
2. Have a separate day of technical talks about Django. Can roll
Jacob's workshop into this. Make it about Django and expect a basic
level of knowledge from the crowd.
