What is Django?
Django is an open source Python web framework used for web development. Released in July 2005, Django is popular for its component-based architecture making applications more flexible and scalable as they grow.
The framework’s Model-Template-View (MTV) structure encourages the don’t-repeat-yourself (DRY) development principle as well as reusability across projects. As a result of its design, Django supports rapid development strengthened by its built-in security features.
The Django Software Foundation maintains and progresses Django’s development.
