Django: A brief introduction

Introducing Django, along with it's history.


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.


Django real-world applications:












As we can see applications, such as YouTube, Spotify and even Instagram have used Django to a certain degree in it's infrastructure. This makes Django a very desirable and reliable back-end framework to implement in many use cases.
