for Speed, Flexibility and Scale

Django web development accelerates our client’s vision, from prototyping to development and launch, whilst keeping everything stable, reliable and secure.

We’ve been developing web apps with Django since back in 2008. We’ve built hundreds of Django applications including projects for NATO, the UN, Zoetis and we have no plans to stop.

What is Django?

Django is a modern ‘batteries included’ web framework that offers speed, scalability and security benefits. Whether you’re looking to create a fully-fledged product quickly, or you want to create an MVP with major scaling potential, Django has plenty to offer.

Prebuilt components

Django comes with ready-to-go features that make up essential parts of your application’s backend and perform essential web development tasks.

  • A comprehensive admin interface
  • A templating engine
  • An elegant ORM
  • Built-in schema migrations
  • Security that reduces vulnerability to a range of third-party attacks

  • A powerful serialization engine
  • User authentication packages for OAuth
  • A built-in API browser for testing
  • Integration with a range of third-party libraries

We’re Django specialists

We’ve been using Django since its early days. We’re so keen on the framework that we’ve even open sourced a number of projects for the Django community:

  • Django-rest-auth provides a set of REST API endpoints for Authentication and Registration.
  • Django cron, an app to automate and schedule cron tasks.

Python and Django are powerful tools

Django is a popular development tool among a wide range of businesses, from household names like Youtube, Instagram, Spotify and Mozilla to the early-stage, tech superstars of tomorrow.

Python frequently ranks among the most popular backend languages in the world. Django specifically has experienced a steep rise in popularity over the past decade too, firmly establishing itself as one of the go-to backend development frameworks for speed and reliability.

What are the benefits of using Django for backend development?

So, what’s driving this popularity?

It’s easy to see why so many tech success stories are Django web applications. It’s fast, flexible, reliable, secure and, importantly, low cost.

Python is also becoming the language of choice for AI and advanced data science – and as these are huge interest areas for businesses right now, Django is a potentially future-proof choice for building your product on.

Stability and reliability

Django works. We know this because it’s been growing in popularity since its creation in 2005 and powers some of tech’s most profitable products. We’ve built hundreds of apps on Django, for hundreds of satisfied clients.

It’s not the hottest new technology on the block – and this comes with major benefits. Django’s relative longevity means we can hire truly experienced developers, whilst a mature open source community allows us to work with reliable, transparent source code.

Scalability and speed

Being Python-based and code-light, Django is an ideal tool for those needing to build quickly – whether you need an MVP or a fully-featured product ready for launch.

And, when your product gains traction and you need to step things up, Django offers plenty of scalability without too much effort. As well as working well with a microservices-based architecture, Django allows you to store data on other servers for statelessness using Cache Backends.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Django?

Django is a high-level Python web framework for backend development. It’s designed to let web developers create secure, scalable websites quickly. It does this by offering a range of prebuilt modules and components that reduce the amount of code developers need to write.

These combine with automated security features and near-unlimited horizontal scaling potential to create a framework that is simple to use and ideal for reducing time to market.

Django uses model-template-view architecture. This makes it fast, flexible and easy to modify as your business grows and your application needs to scale. You’ll often hear Django described as a ‘batteries included’ framework. This means that it comes with a range of web development features ready to use out of the box, including an ORM, templating, admin and authentication features that you’d otherwise need third-party services for.

Do I need a Python Django developer?

Django is designed to be easy to pick up for anyone with prior experience in writing Python code. This means that you don’t necessarily need to hire Django developers specifically – if you’re working in Django any good Python developer should be able to pick it up.

That said, there will always be some sort of learning curve. If time to market is paramount, you might want to hire Python developers with prior Django experience – or go one step further and outsource to a specialist Django development company.

This helps you hit the ground running and max out on the acceleration potential Django offers.

Should I outsource my Django development?

There’s no single answer to this question. The best path for you depends on:

  • Whether digital products are one of your organization’s core competencies, and whether that is a goal for your business
  • Whether your project needs progressing in the short-term
  • Whether you have the budget to sustain an in-house development team long-term, and can compete with top tech firms for an in-demand profession

 

Outsourcing is a fast, cost-effective way to access a global pool of talent, without having to fight half of Silicon Valley tooth and nail to hire top Python developers. This means that you can realize your vision faster and cheaper, and launch more quickly.

Needless to say, in a fast-moving environment where time to market is paramount, this gives you a significant advantage. If you’re looking to attract the attention of investors, getting an MVP out there whilst you know your idea is unique can be the difference between funding and no funding.

If establishing an in-house development team doesn’t fall within your long-term strategic interests, outsourcing might be your strongest option.
