I have only recently started using Django, but so far I'm very excited.

Django is a project that's been used out there in the real world by professionals with budgets and deadlines to keep, and it shows. It is very well thought out and carefully engineered.

Django is a very Pythonic framework in that it favours clean and readable code over syntactic sugar - as the official site states: "Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design."

I find that those words are true. Django is a good tool for me. It allows me to get my work done quickly in a straight-forward fashion. The default configuration and options are very sane.

The database layer (ORM) is very easy to learn. It is not as powerful as SQLAlchemy, but it is much easier to use and much better tested.

The URLconf system is a brilliant way of dispatching requests. The syntax is very easy. If you know regular expressions, you should have no problems.

The view mechanism do not require much effort either. The greater part of the codes goes to your application specific mangling of the data, not the plumbing.

The template system is a bit crude on first sight. It is nowhere near as powerful as many of its competitors (Kid, Genshi, etc.), but it performs extremely well, and it encourages you to move as much logic away from the templates as possible.

In general, it is very clear that this framework has been used and developed by some very clever people, and I can highly recommend it.

Django Learning Curve

If you've used Python in any capacity before, or gone through some or all of "Dive Into Python", I think you'll be amazed at how quickly you can get basic things up and running. If you've got intermediate Python skills I think you'll be amazed at how much you can customize. If you've got mad python skills I think you'll be amazed at how complete and useful a general framework Django can be for your web work. Be sure to take a look at how active the commits are, how stable and extensible it's become. If you're a company looking for something to build a fast scalable site with the least amount of code eyesore, I'm not sure you're going to get much better than Django.

This is THE web framework. Really makes you follow "Don't Repeat Yourself" and "Keep It Simple, Stupid" principles.
