Guido Points out Django is Gaining Steam

by Jeremy Jones

The BDFL blogged today that Django is "gaining steam". He mentions a talk that Jacob Kaplan-Moss, a Django developer, gave at the Bay Area Python Interest Group, aka "Bay Piggies", and that several folks at Google are interested in Django. I found a Google video link to the above-mentioned talk on the Django mailing list. I haven't listened to it yet, but will probably listen to it tonight. This level of exposure that Django is receiving is really exciting. Mark Ramm, from the TurboGears side of things, posted on Guido's blog that he was excited at what was going on in Django, TurboGears, and Zope. As he mentioned, these are exciting times for web development in Python. Well said, Mark.

I hope you are referring to the new Zope because the old zope was a bit of a processor eating beastie. Plus it was incredibly complex and hard to use, poor documentation as well. Maybe that is why they completely re-wrote it.

I think the re-write is what Mark Ramm was referring to.
