There are endless web development frameworks out there, so why should you learn Django over any of the others? First of all, it’s written in Python, one of the most readable and beginner-friendly programming languages out there.
Note: This course assumes an intermediate knowledge of the Python language. If you’re new to programming with Python, check out some of our beginner tutorials or the introductory course.
The second reason you should learn Django is the scope of its features. If you need to build a website, you don’t need to rely on any external libraries or packages if you choose Django. This means that you don’t need to learn how to use anything else, and the syntax is seamless as you’re using only one framework.
There’s also the added benefit that you don’t need to worry that updating one library or framework will render others that you’ve installed useless. If you do find yourself needing to add extra features, there are a range of external libraries that you can use to enhance your site.
One of the great things about the Django framework is its in-depth documentation. It has detailed documentation on every aspect of Django and also has great examples and even a tutorial to get you started.
There’s also a fantastic community of Django developers, so if you get stuck, there’s almost always a way forward by either checking the docs or asking the community.
Django is a high-level web application framework with loads of features. It’s great for anyone new to web development due to its fantastic documentation, and particularly if you’re also familiar with Python.
