Learning Django Web Development Framework

Mar 05, 2010 insic 12 Comments

Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.

It is written in Python. Developed four years ago by a fast-moving online-news operation, Django was designed to handle two challenges: the intensive deadlines of a newsroom and the stringent requirements of the experienced Web developers who wrote it. It lets you build high-performing, elegant Web applications quickly.

Lately I have been studying this framework and I like it instantly. In this post I have embedded the slideshow that I have read to know what is this framework is all about.

    Your posts always come at the right time for me. For the past week I’ve checking Django (next version 1.2 is about to be released, with huge improvements it seems), and It looks way better than any PHP framework I’ve ever seen. But you have to learn a bit of Python first if you come from the PHP world. It reminds me of Perl, which I liked a lot back in the day.

    “But you have to learn a bit o Python first”, no. Please learn proper Python. You won’t go too far with Django without knowing your way in Python, which leads to people asking on the mailing list the most basic questions, which are not related to Django at all – things like: “How do I organize my code”, “How do I import files”, “How do I use logging”, etc.

    It’s a framework, but not something that makes you avoid writing actual code.

      Yes, I agree. I meant a bit of Python if you want to start playing with Django, to see if you like how it works. I’ve read some docs about Django and now I’m learning proper Python *before* thinking of doing any project. Besides Python seems great for a lot of things, not only web dev.

      I agree, learn the language first then its frameworks. I read a whole book on Python “Beginning Python” it was called, it was a good book but I still don’t feel like am ready for Django.

    We are now using this to develop a new community system using Pinax. It’s pretty cool. I am experiencing some problem with the UI design/css styling. I might have to ask you some day about this. Thanks a lot for this. Great post!

    Django is great but I prefer Pylons agnosticism.
