    • demo django-awards
    • customising builtin apps still going to be a challenge
    • Part 5:Verdict
    • documentation bit lacking
    • tests didn’t pass (but at least it had them)
    • a bit unfocused
    • making some good choices
    • bright people working on it
    • sophisticated site up quickly
    • would use it for next project (that fit the mould)
