My client is looking to hire a new Python developer, initially for an 8 month contract. It's a home working position, we communicate mostly via Skype / email / gtalk etc. Although we do meet up in meatspace from time to time, so ideally a candidate would be in the London / Oxford area.

You will be working with your truly. The projects I've been working on are in the server side of web-enabled devices. The web interface is written in Django, so you'll need the usual battery of front-end technologies; HTML, CSS, Javascript etc. We have a Twistd server which communicates with devices in the field, that my client produces. In the middle we have dynamic user interface generation from XML.

So there is some genuinely interesting technology there, and more such projects planned. We need someone who is a good problem solver with a general interest in web technologies. There's also the occasionally need work with data at the bits and bytes level, so a working knowledge of C that would be a plus.

See the Careers page on wildfoundry.com for the full details.

    You might want to consider having someone come to the next Oxford Python Meetup (if you don't already). Many of the regulars are web developers.

This is because mod_wsgi does not pass OS environment variables to the underlying application by default
Aigars, I didn't know uwsgi had such features. Thanks for the heads up.
Good example code. It could be updated to expose today's rendering techniques (anything that does not use glBegin/glEnd calls).
