You know I mean business when the article title contains an exclamation mark. And what a business; I have been approved as a member of the Django Software Foundation. Obligatory rocket: ๐Ÿš€

I almost missed the news if it wasn't for the Djangonaut Space crew sharing it on our Discord channel.

An official email is coming to the selected people, but I'm too impatient to withhold the announcement until then.

So, instead, check the monthly board meeting notes at:

It's pretty cool to be a member especially since that wasn't in the stars before DSF membership now recognizes a much broader range of contributions to Django, as my contributions to the community did not include code. Of course, the latter has also since been changed thanks to the Djangonaut Space program.

I will await further briefing from the mothership about joining the DSF and update my websites later. For now, I'll enjoy my new bright green-colored username on the Django Discord server. ๐Ÿ’š

PS. Check the Django community portal if you haven't heard of the Discord server before.
