So I went on an adventure this weekend to play around with the django framework. I must say, I am impressed. With almost no knowledge of python and absolutely no experience with django, I was able to convert this website you're on right now from vanilla php spaghetti code to django (complete with backend admin CRUD) in 8 hours.
The django website has a 6 part tutorial that is very effective: Django Tutorial
Now that I've exposed myself to django, I am itching to build more with it.
