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.

  • Quick development
  • The principle of non repetition
