The Django Project, a web framework for perfectionists with deadlines
Django is a Python Web framework that influences it's users to create applications with a straight-forward, Object Oriented design, app module extensibility, and a Continuous Integration (CI) project workflow methodology.
Django was invented by a small team of developers at the Lawrence News Journal, a local Kansas city newsroom, with fast-moving deadlines, an ever-evolving, journalism industry. Django was built by experienced Python programmers, who in 2003 started building web applications in Python.
The framework automatically takes care of much of the time consuming back-end programming required in Web development, so you can focus on writing your applications without needing 'reinvent the wheel'.
Django is Free and Open Source
And supported by a large online community of Djangonauts and Pythonistas.
