This Saturday, the Front Range Pythoneers is holding a sprint to
complete the support for Oracle in Django.
Why might you want to attend? Whether you're interested in Django,
portable object-relational mapping code, how to optimize an Oracle
execution plan for generated SQL, or just doing some intensive coding in
Python, this should be a great opportunity to learn and contribute.
Here are the details:

Complete support for Oracle in Django in time for 1.0. Suggested by Matt
Specifically, we would like to build on the good work already done by
the Django community to produce a single patch that can be applied to
current subversion sources, enabling Django's ORM to pass basic tests
against an Oracle database. The current patches available have
Oracle-specific conditional tests in many locations; we will try to
confine such code to the django.db.backends.oracle package.
The bug report stipulating Oracle support by Django version 1.0 is here:

Post Sprint Party
Some of us are planning to go to the Cuban Connection fundraiser
<http://www.bouldercuba.org/>, 6 PM - 1 AM, St. Julien Hotel (our
favorite meeting place for FrontRangePythoneers
<http://wiki.python.org/moin/FrontRangePythoneers>). In addition to
raising money for a good cause, this will be a chance to stretch our
weary coding muscles while dancing salsa to Quemando and Havana NRG.
