Django's Adrian Holovaty on the Ruby on Rails Podcast

by Jeremy Jones

Adrian just blogged that the Ruby on Rails podcast interviewed him about Django. This struck me as really interesting, but not overly surprising. I blogged some months back about a video of a meeting between Ruby on Rails folks and Django folks where each side (David Heinemeier Hansson from Rails and Adrian Holovaty from Django) presented their respective frameworks and had some interesting discussion. The interaction between Adrian and David seemed pretty amiable and the approaches taken by the Rails folks and Django folks don't seem too terribly different from one another. It's nice to see positive recognition among "competing" frameworks and "competing" languages. At least I hope this is positive recognition. I haven't yet had a chance to listen to the podcast. I'll post back with a report when I do listen to it.
