After reconsidering the numbers, I've decided to drastically reduce the price of straphost. You still get one-on-one tutoring sessions where you learn to deploy your Python application on a Linux server. Now, however, extra tutoring sessions are free, and the initial setup cost has been reduced to $500. For $40 per month, you get free hosting plus unlimited tutoring sessions if you need to install new software for your application (like, say, memcached) or have a bug you need help tracking down.
Seeing as the cost of a reasonably-sized (2nd smallest) Linode is $40, the addition of free deployment tutoring should be a draw. If you agree, email me and let me know that you'd like to be considered for straphost's initial cohort of clients. As a reminder, the first group will be very small to ensure enough one-on-one tutoring time for everyone.Posted on by Jeff Knupp
