I love python
it is my new mainstream language now. I flip between jruby but I like working with python. Does it a little bit of everything. Not as cool to geeks as haskell, lisp or whatever but I like it.
Now I am laying with this instant django, will be interesting.
yeah, nice language. I could get into that myself. I hear django is ok too.

Yep, I also really like it for making quick and small programs.
Has anyone used it for server processes? I am still using Java or PHP for that.

I've used it in trac, strictly as a user, not a programmer. Miserably slow would be the best way to describe it, although it could be a matter of implementation rather than an inherent quality of the language.
did you have it running as a persistent process or was the interpreter firing up for every request, clay?
I'm still with perl for web stuff, but if I had to change, this is where I'd go I think.

Persistent process, trac acting as its own web server. It runs a lot better under fastcgi, although it's still slower than I would like.
I had built a nice source code management appliance using CVSTrac, but Trac looks a lot nicer. The choice is whether to tweak CVSTrac to look like Trac, or ship modpython with the appliance so I can use Trac. Unfortunately my current platform of choice doesn't come with modpython.
i don't actually like trac much. it just looks and feels real clunky. I prefer mantis for bug tracking, and there are shit loads of wiki options. The only thing is having one logon for code browsing and all the rest.

Python's an excellent general purpose language and Django is the only web framework I've ever been able to tolerate.
Other than the broken multi-threading (can't take advantage of multiple CPUs) it's nearly perfect.

what kind of architecture does django have? mvc?
what other ones have you tried mb?
