Now I am working with Django in a project for a University course, I meet Django by a suggestion of my friend Joaquim Rocha, he made a search for Web framework’s and found Django.

Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design. The authors of Django describe Django as “The Web framework for perfectionists with deadlines”.

After evaluate several Web Frameworks, we choose Django because it use Python and Python is our favorite programming language.

You could think that Django is not easy or powerful than other more popular Web frameworks , but you are wrong Django is very powerful, easy to learn and very faster for web development. So when you need to choose a web framework for do a project, before selecting one of the most popular is better take a look at Django.

In the video on top Jacob Kaplan-Moss one of the creators of Django talks about the framework in Google TechTalks’s, take a look to see how easy and powerful Django is 😀 .
