Author: Brad Dayley
Release Date: February 01, 2008
Django is a website framework language similar to TurboGears and Ruby on Rails. It can be deployed on Linux, Windows, Unix, and MacOS to provide developers with a fast and yet powerful method to implement full enterprise web sites. This is an emerging technology that has only been around for a couple of years. However, it has already become the preferred framework for the Python language even for Guido van Rossum, the creator of Python. Django is such a simple language that this book is able to target a wide range of developers, from those who are just beginning to create web sites to those who are already experienced and are interested in learning how to use the framework. The book is organized to guide readers in understanding the benefits and the organization of the framework. It then takes them through the process of using the framework to create a fully functional web site. Readers will be able to begin expanding on that framework to generate web sites specific to their needs.
