Should_You_Use_Python__Django_For_Your_Web_ApplicationsIt is difficult to create robust web apps quickly. Each of the popular web app development languages and frameworks have weaknesses. With PHP sloppy coding leads to security issues, and Java is complex and hard to learn and use. The same can be said for Ruby on Rails. So are Python/Django web applications the best choice

Python developers say the language is easy to learn, and a recent study found that Python is now the most popular introductory teaching language at top U.S. universities. Python is a readable language and Python programmers focus on maintaining readability when code.

The Django framework makes web application development easy. Several well-known web apps were built with Python/Django including YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram, and Disqus. The website http://www.djangosites.org/ has links to over 4,000 Django powered example websites.

Should I use Django For Web Application Development?

There are attractive benefits to the framework:

  • Easy MVC model and class creation enables developers to focus on the UI
  • Designers can change the UI without any programming changes using Django’s template language
  • Extensive support for Unicode makes i18n easy
  • Django provides high-level abstractions of common Web development patterns to developers can code faster
  • Good tools and interfaces to other languages for high-performance computation
  • Built-in prevention of common web app security flaws
  • A framework for creating GIS applications.

Django's primary goal is to ease the creation of complex, dynamic, database-driven websites. That should sound attractive to companies looking to develop a powerful presence. So why is it not as commonplace as it should be?

Finding a Python/Django Developer 

A shortage of software developers in general, and experienced Python/Django web app developers in particular makes it difficult for most IT departments to build a solid in-house team. On top of the longer hiring process, you then have to spend time getting your team to work well.  This may put your Django web development plans behind by months. Another issue is cost: good Python developers aren’t cheap.
