[WEBINAR] The New Normal: Dealing with the Reality of an Unsecure World


Definition - What does Django mean?

Django is an advanced Web framework written in Python that makes use of the model view controller (MVC) architectural pattern. Django was created in a fast-moving newsroom environment, and its key objective is to ease the development of complicated, database-driven websites. This Web framework was initially developed for The World Company for managing some of their news-oriented sites. In July 2005, it was publicly released under a BSD license.

Techopedia explains Django

Django is available as an open-source Web framework, and it uses Python extensively to create files, settings and data models. It is designed to address two main challenges: the rigorous requirements of highly experienced Web developers and the intense deadlines of a newsroom. Django concentrates more on automating wherever possible and sticking to the "don't repeat yourself" principle.

Django emphasizes the following:
  • Pluggability and reusability of components
  • Quick development
  • The principle of non repetition
