Django was originally created in late 2003 at World Online, the Web division
of the Lawrence Journal-World newspaper in Lawrence, Kansas.
The PRIMARY AUTHORS are (and/or have been):
* Adrian Holovaty
* Simon Willison
* Jacob Kaplan-Moss
* Wilson Miner
* Malcolm Tredinnick
* Georg "Hugo" Bauer
* Luke Plant
* Russell Keith-Magee
* Robert Wittams
* Gary Wilson
* Brian Rosner
* Justin Bronn
* Karen Tracey
* Jannis Leidel
* James Tauber
* Alex Gaynor
* Andrew Godwin
* Carl Meyer
* Ramiro Morales
* Chris Beaven
* Honza Král
* Idan Gazit
More information on the main contributors to Django can be found in
docs/internals/committers.txt.
And here is an inevitably incomplete list of MUCH-APPRECIATED CONTRIBUTORS --
people who have submitted patches, reported bugs, added translations, helped
answer newbie questions, and generally made Django that much better:

his sage sysadmin advice.
Ian Bicking for convincing Adrian to ditch code generation.
Mark Pilgrim for diveintopython.org.
Guido van Rossum for creating Python.
