  == Background ==
  Deft was initially inspired by Facebook's (actually !FriendFeed's ) Tornado open source
project. Tornado is written in python and was open sourced by Facebook September 2009.  Deft
was started in October 2010 by Roger Schildmeijer and Jim Petersson,  since then, a number
of other developers (from different parts of the world) have submitted patches to the project.
External contributors have also been involved in the pre-commit review process that Deft has
adopted from Apache Cassandra. Currently the project is hosted on github and has 133 watchers
and 19 forks.
