Some Django propaganda:
Video killed the radio star
Django for non-programmers
My friend and colleague Jeff Croft launched his new website built with Django. Jeff has followed it up the launch with an introduction to Django for non-programmers that’s required reading for anything thinking about switching to Django.
A success story
Eric Walstad (who I was lucky enough to meet at the Django meetup in Palo Alto) posted a J2EE to Django success story on django-users. He went from 40k lines of Java/JSP — without unit tests or documentation — to 25k lines of Python/Django templates complete with docstrings and unit tests. He writes that the project “has been a huge success for me, my team and our clients.”
If you’ve got a similar Django success story, I encourage you to post it to django-users — they’re so much fun to read.
