Python and Django for Web Development

There is no doubt that Python is growing more and more for web development. It is only because of its superiority and ease to write complex code to develop unique platforms.

It is not only beneficial to learn and develop Python-based web applications but also rewarding at times which makes you stand out of other developers as not everyone dedicates their potential only towards this technology and establishes their long-lasting career opportunities as really expertise developers are hard to find in the world of people who are following the crowd in terms of technology preference.  

Let’s find a few of the advantages of preferring this technology than any other technology:-

1. It is Easy

Yes, you may ask and utter surprisingly “easy”? Because as a normal thinking no programming is easy but if you ask the programmers that which is the easiest programming language to learn than majority of them will respond “Python”.

Its reliance on whitespace and common expressions trims out a lot of programming and allows to code within few lines.

You can find this simply from the code below which is used for printing:-

print ‘Hello, world!’

Many languages normally have at least 3-4 lines of code to execute this simple task.

2. It is perfect for building prototypes.

Do you have a product idea and want to represent the world? So you want a prototype?

Will you invest your valuable time in lengthy coding just for the prototype?

Yes, you can do it with Python as it lets you do more with less code which is ultimately time saving, money saving and also satisfying the clients.

3. It is amazingly flexible.

There are several robust Python implementations integrated with other programming languages.

* CPython, a version with C
* Jython, or Python integrated with Java
* IronPython, which is designed for compatibility with .NET and C#
* PyObjc, or Python written with Objective C tool kits
* RubyPython, or Python combined with Ruby.

4. It has a heap of resources

As a Python/Django developer, it’s practically impossible to get stuck in a rut with the huge number of resources that constantly keep getting refreshed.

It also brags an extensive library with built-in functionality, which explains why so many programs are written in Python.

Python also has a built-in unit test framework to ensure your code works as intended.

5. Robust Frameworks

Python owns many frameworks that differentiate the use of frameworks and makes the development quick and easy with the use of a specific framework.

Eg, Django and Flask are used for the website development.

There are many frameworks available in Python like Django, Flask, Tornado, Pyramid, web2py, Grok, Zope 2, and many more among which Django and Flask is the most popular framework of Python.

6. Python is in great demand in the era of IoT

Platforms like Raspberry Pi, a series of credit card-sized computers running Python, allow developers to build their own exciting devices like cameras, radios, phones, and even games through it with ease.

With advanced Python programming concepts, developers can homebrew their own gadgets, and connect them with real-world markets independently and on the cheap.

7. It is a core technology in blue-chip sites.

Given Python’s affinity for scale, it shouldn’t be surprising why it’s the core language in many ‘blue chip’ sites and services. The list includes Dropbox, YouTube, Instagram, PayPal, eBay, Yelp, Reddit, Disqus, Bitbucket, Mozilla Firefox, Pinterest, NASA, Eventbite, and many more.

For web developers, this means that mastering this technology and its popular advanced frameworks like Django should ensure you’re able to find work or even build your own product or service as a startup.
