Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.
Developed by a fast-moving online-news operation, Django was designed to handle two challenges: the intensive deadlines of a newsroom and the stringent requirements of the experienced Web developers who wrote it. It lets you build high-performing, elegant Web applications quickly.
Django focuses on automating as much as possible and adhering to the DRY principle.

I find Python itself to be rather troublesome. It's okay for small scripts, but for entire web apps? This thing called the GIL is just horrible! (yes, there are other implementations of Python to work around this, but frameworks must still take the 'standard' Python into account),
IMHO, Django takes DRY a step too far. It's at times so DRY you don't know what's happening and where stuff is comming from. My main experience is trying to add functionality to Track, maybe it's just the Track coding style...
