Python is my favorite programming language. It is simple yet powerful, crisp yet comprehensive, flexible yet structured – “Pythonic“. I once heard at a conference, “Python is a magical tool that easily lets you solve the world’s toughest problems.” I believe Python is one of the best languages for test automation, and I also develop websites using the Django framework. I’m definitely a Pythonista and a Pythoneer. I was even featured as the PyDev of the Week on DZone!

Django is a well-designed, batteries-included Python web framework. Anyone who knows Python can learn it easily (even those with little to no web dev experience), and its documentation and tutorials are great. Django also automatically provides a powerful admin interface for easy site maintenance. As a framework, its power is primarily on the backend, but it can easily integrate with frontend frameworks like Angular. The Django REST Framework makes it easy to create REST API endpoints, too. Django projects can be seamlessly deployed to Heroku.
