        I really love Django because it is really fast to create a web application from scratch and it has a lot a facilities like the ORM or the Admin module ! The Python language is really easy to read and powerful, that's why I prefer Django over Symfony.

        I use Django at work to make tools for the technicians but I also use it for me to build my personal website which I host on PythonAnywhere.
