I’ve been busy learning Python and Django lately. Python is a great language, and Django is an excellent framework. I still enjoy PHP, especially for scripting, but I also see that it has certain pitfalls that Python doesn’t (And vice versa). Django is a framework for web development, and a good one at that. It supports a lot of abstraction and it has a high level of security from the get go using it’s Models implementation for SQL/Databases (Which also supports database abstraction meaning multidatabase support). It has a higher level of security for people starting out, as novice PHP programmers often make numerous security mistakes.
Python is fast and great at rapid prototyping. I’m actually studying it for a job I’d like to apply for towards the end of June. I’ll be posting code examples, fixes, and other Python related material here as well as my normal material! My first project is a Python based wiki application, similar in functionality to MediaWiki and already well on it’s way. Once complete (Or ready for a first release), I’ll publish it here.
