Django, a Python open source web application framework, was released publicly in 2005 after originally being developed to manage several news-oriented sites for The World Company of Lawrence, Kansas. Django provides an optional administrative create, read, update, and delete interface that is generated dynamically through introspection and configured via admin models. Django developers can quickly build high-performing, elegant web applications in addition to complex, database-driven websites.
Since its creation, thousands of companies have turned to Django developers to build their site and web applications using the framework. Some sites using Django include Pinterest, Instagram, Mozilla, the Washington Times, and PBS.
