Why We Choose Django
At sophilabs, we pride ourselves on our technical expertise, which enables us to find the best solutions to meet our clients' needs. One of the technologies we're well-versed in is Django, an open-source framework for developing web applications. In this post, we'll look at what Django can do and why it's an excellent choice for creating a website.
What is Django?
Django is a web framework that facilitates efficient and high-quality web development. It is written in Python, a programming language that prioritizes simple syntax and readability for human programmers.
Adrian Holovaty and Simon Willison created Django in 2003 while they were building interactive web applications for newspapers. They released Django as an open-source framework in 2005. Pronounced JANG-oh (the D is silent), it's named after jazz manouche guitarist and composer Django Reinhardt.
Today, many high-profile sites use Django, including Instagram, Spotify, Dropbox, Mozilla, Reddit, Pinterest, NASA, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Onion, National Geographic, Eventbrite, and Disqus. But what makes Django the ideal choice for such a wide variety of platforms?
