Django: Getting Started Transcripts
Chapter: Introducing the Django Web Framework
Lecture: Why choose Django?
0:00 There's lots of frameworks out there. Why pick Django? Personally, I find the interface just makes sense.
0:07 The libraries are pretty clean. The pieces fit together nicely and the framework's pretty robust
0:11 Most of your website needs can be found all in this one place. This not only means you don't have to look elsewhere,
0:18 it also means you're guaranteed everything will work together. Django scales up pretty well as well. If your next project becomes a huge success,
0:26 you'll be happy to know you can still use Django with it. This is partially due to its share nothing design.
0:32 There are very few dependencies between pieces, which means you can split things up into multiple servers to achieve your performance needs.
0:42 Security is one of those things you don't want to have to think about. You want experts to think about it for you.
0:48 Django provides tools for authentication, authorization and permissions allowing you to keep the private parts of your site well. Private.
0:57 And of course, it's open source. It uses a BSD license, which means it plays well with other kinds of copyrights
1:04 and you can safely use it for private enterprises.
