This morning during the DjangoCon US Lightning Talks, I announced the launch of djangonauts.org, a directory of Django user groups worldwide. Any and all Django user groups are welcome to visit the site and list their site for free.
In addition, if your user group does not have an existing website or meetup page, djangonauts.org will provide a section for you (e.g. djangonauts.org/chicago). The site is powered by DjangoCMS which makes it easy to cordon off a section and give group organizers full CMS control over it.
As the current organizer of the Chicago Djangonauts user group, I've received feedback from members saying they would really like a website for the group. I started playing domain name bingo and stumbled upon djangonauts.org, which was available. It seemed presumptuous for the Chicago group to exclusively use the domain and so we cooked up this idea for a global directory site. Nothing commercial, just a little give back to the community that has helped Imaginary for many years.
So, visit djangonauts.org and list your site. If you want, we'll give you a section to call your own. Help spread the word too.
