The second /dev/fort was held in Knockbrex Castle, Scotland, between May 30th and June 6th, 2009.

After many hours of travel, two missed trains, a couple of pints of beer and a lot of driving (the drinking and driving were separate people, before anyone complains), everyone converged on the castle, picked rooms by pointing and declaring “Yoink!” and then unpacked.

The site

A few false starts and a lot of discussion later, we found inspiration over dinner and (after digesting) went full-steam-ahead into the planning of our new website.

As with the first /dev/fort, we didn’t finish it during the week and have a few remaining problems to iron out (including a thorny issue inside django itself).

We hope to achieve an invitation-only alpha phase within the next couple of months.
