What is Django?

Django is an open-source and high-level python-based framework. It is one of the most popular to use and integrate into your web application.  It follows the MVT (Model-View-Template) architectural pattern, while most other frameworks utilize the MVC (Model-View-Controller) architectural pattern.

It is typically known as the framework for "perfectionists with deadlines". It allows you to create highly scalable websites from the ground up while offering rapid development in the process. Django was created by web developers Adrian Holovaty and Simon Willison and was officially released in 2005.
