This project mixes many of the Open Source projects I've been using for the past 4 years: Django, GeoServer, ExtJS, OpenLayers and I like to think about it like a "Reference SDI" because it shows how to tie all the components together and is an excellent starting point to start developing your own SDI using the excellent Django framework.
The source code is available at github and I wrote some scripts to fire up an Amazon Ubuntu instance, install all the required libraries, clone the latest development version and run a development server, the can be found in this gist. Please don't hesitate to try it out and if you get stuck, look for help in #geonode at irc.freenode.net.
Let me introduce you to my beautiful wife, Cristina Ospino. Thanks to everyone who assisted or sent me a note. We already had a civil marriage before, but this was The Real Thing!
What a better way to start the new blog than posting a picture of my little baby girl
