SG101 Turns 10 Years Old!

SurfGuitar101.com was created by Brian Neal. The server-side code is written in the Python programming language using the awesome Django Web framework. Client-side coding was done in Javascript, making heavy use of the jQuery and jQuery UI libraries.

The site design was created by Ken Dushane of the band The Crashmatics. Various icons and graphics were contributed by Ariel (DreadInBabylon), Ferenc Dobronyi, and Joseph Koch. Additional icons courtesy of FamFamFam.

The following 3rd party libraries were leveraged in the construction of this site: MySQLdb, python-markdown, PIL, pytz, django-tagging, django-elsewhere, gdata-python-client, python-memcached, html5lib, tinymce, markItUp!, Haystack, xapian-haystack, Blueprint, jQuery Cycle, JEditable, redis-py, Celery, & repoze.timeago.

The site runs on an infrastructure powered by many open-source tools: the Apache server with mod_wsgi, a MySQL database, the Xapian search engine library, Redis and memcached. The server is running Ubuntu, an operating system based upon the Debian GNU / Linux distribution.

Special thanks to Abraham Aguilar and Brian Fady for providing useful feedback and testing.
