What is Django, and how is it used?

In the autumn of 2003, two web programmers working for the Lawrence Journal-World newspaper had a problem: PHP scripting was scaling poorly to their growing code base. And so, Adrian Holovaty and Simon Willison turned to Python. They soon built a web development framework based on it and named it after Adrian’s favorite jazz guitarist,  Django Reinhardt. Today, Django is the second most popular Python-based framework, especially among devs; both startups and older businesses now hire Django developers from a global pool of over 7000 from 140 countries.

But what exactly is Django, and of what use is it to you? It’s a free, high-level web development framework that enables easy, rapid web development and maintenance. The framework’s primary capabilities are on the backend side, with features like its ORM and URL routing systems. However, it also has some front-end capabilities, making it a full-stack solution, albeit not entirely so. The development framework is flexible and highly scalable–hardly surprising since discomfort with the PHP’s limited scalability was the main drive behind its creation in the first place.

Interestingly, functions and components in Django’s framework follow a naming convention based on Python but are still unique. Thus, companies ultimately have to hire dedicated Django developers because they are most able to navigate the framework.

Why is Django popular, and how will it benefit your business?

Django has come a long way from its beginnings as a newsroom-created framework to a strongly favored web solution for developers and enthusiasts alike. According to 6Sense, it dominates the web platform charts with its 31.53% global market share, easily beating other competitors like Ruby on Rails (26.96%) and Spring Framework. Moreover, companies that hire dedicated Django developers and use the framework often have employee sizes ranging from 20 to over 250.

Django has an extensive customer base among tech startups and establishments in machine learning, AI, Big Data, and even aeronautics. For one stellar example (in every sense of the term), NASA uses Django to maintain the efficiency of all its knowledge-sharing sites. So, what makes this web development framework attractive to such reputable entities?

  • Fast, Easy, Reliable: Django’s primary advantage over many other web frameworks is that it is designed to be very user-friendly. It has a unique and straightforward syntax that strikes a balance between power and ease. However, its language templates are relatable enough that you can still make sense of them if you already have some exposure to other text-based templates like Jinja2 or Smarty. Moreover, it has other user-friendly components like the admin panel, which is known to handle easier than in Yii or Laravel.

    Django also facilitates speed by incorporating capabilities based on rapid development principles. For instance, it highly favors code reusability, and developers can run multiple iterative cycles at once without having to restart development cycles.
  • Versatile: From content management systems and wikis to social media and e-commerce sites, there is almost no type of website you can’t construct using Django. Moreover, it has some front-end capabilities in addition to its backend functions. For instance, you can build dynamic content using its HTML templating engine, and its URL routing system can handle frontend requests.

    Add that to the fact that Django can work with most client-side frameworks, including React, Vue, and Angular, and you have an advantage for companies that hire Django developers. A Django adept can not only undertake almost any web project and write APIs on the framework but also work with a wide range of other web solutions.
  • Highly Scalable and Maintainable: Scalability is another key selling point of Django’s development framework, which is why it is favored for warehousing and database applications. The framework has a shared-nothing architecture to enable developers to scale effectively. That means that each part of the architecture is independent of the others; for instance, a different node handles each update request, and the nodes don’t share memory. This architecture makes it so that you can change parts if need be, and you can easily scale up by adding new nodes at any level without gunking up the rest of the work.

    When you hire Django engineers to build your company’s website, you will find that maintaining it doesn’t take too big a bite out of your budget. A combination of Django’s DRY (don’t repeat yourself) approach to code reusability and its MVC (Model-View-Controller) architecture means developers have a splendid time maintaining Django-built websites.
  • Highly Secure: Whether you’re Instagram with millions of user passwords or a fledgling e-commerce startup with customer credit card information to protect, you must avoid leaving holes in your website security system. Luckily, there is an advantage here for companies that hire dedicated Django developers because the framework makes website security much easier to ensure.

    Django’s design is such that it automatically crosses the T’s and dots the I’s on your website security features throughout the development process. It offers robust default protection against common vulnerabilities, such as cross-site request forgery, clickjacking, and cross-site scripting. It also helps avoid mistakes like compromising passwords and session data by storing them as keys or password hashes instead of storing them directly.
  • Sizable Collection of Libraries and Packages: Part of Django’s vaunted web development speed comes from its ecosystem’s considerable array of reusable libraries and packages. The libraries contain codes for all kinds of functions, while the packages contain apps, sites, tools, and frameworks that you can easily plug into projects.

    When you hire a Django developer, you have a professional who understands how to best balance the right packages and code directories with creative coding for the parts that make your website unique. Moreover, many of these tools are highly customizable. For instance, the JavaSript-written Django CKEditor provides tailorable ways to write content directly into websites.
  • Excellent Data Serialization: Data serialization is remarkably easy for Django developers. Frameworks like Django REST make it possible to not only serialize data but also render it in almost any format, including JSON and XML. That makes the platform flexible and handy for creating web services or designing websites where client-side code handles all data rendering.
  • Sizable Developer Community: Another great thing about Django is that it has a sizable and growing community. This community contains both fully employed developers and independent ones looking for full employment or contracts. This offers CTOs a sizable pool of Django developers for hire; for the developers, it offers a wealth of industry experience and expertise they can tap into at any time. Essentially, if any developer runs into a complex problem they can’t solve, the solution is almost certainly just a forum login away.

Roles and responsibilities of a Django developer

Perhaps it's clear now what perks are on the table for Django users. You’re now thinking of expanding your budget to hire a Django developer who can bring some of that speed and reliability to your web development cycles. If so, then you need to make that move knowing what slots you're bringing in your new employee to fill. These are some of the principal and additional roles of a Django developer.

  • Design and Develop Python-Based Web Products: When businesses seek to hire Django developers, they are primarily interested in their website development skills. A Django developer can leverage the architecture and veritable stack of features to create a functional website. This means running development cycles that involve drawing up the new project concept, setting up the environment, creating the sample website portfolio, adding routes, defining models, and adding database entries. The Django development environment contains loads of pluggable and built-in apps and features that make these processes a breeze for developers.
  • Maintain, Debug, and Optimize Python-based Websites: After website implementation comes the recurrent task of maintaining the site, otherwise known as job security for developers. Django’s framework comes with a suite of features that allow the easy and reliable website maintenance at any point in its service life. For instance, it enables periodic software updates and database backups, implementation of basic user support and feedback features, routine security checks to identify vulnerabilities, and debugging tools to remove them. Additionally, developers can implement basic optimizations to boost performance metrics like speed, SEO ranking, uptime, and error rate. That’s not all, though.

    Businesses that hire Django developers also benefit from the framework’s basis in Python. Basically, Django adepts know enough Python to make sense of and work with many other Python-based systems.
  • Write Reusable and Efficient Custom Packages: When writing APIs or designing websites within the Django framework, developers can leverage a collection of pre-written, Python-based packages and code libraries. However, Django programmers don’t have to rely entirely on these; they can also create their own and upload them to test.pypi index. This gives Django developers a whole extra level of adaptability, as it means they can create and import functions that don’t already exist within the framework.
  • Integrating Front-end Components with Server-side Logic: Companies hire Django engineers primarily to handle backend development. However, the framework also has a user-facing side that programmers also deal with. It is a Django developer’s job to work with front-end developers, integrating user-facing features with the server-side logic of the framework.
  • Maintaining and Optimizing System Security Features: A Django developer’s job includes implementing data protection and security solutions and keeping them optimally functional. These involve, among other things, conducting periodic diagnostics on authentication and authorization infrastructure and then performing debugging and optimization on them.
  • Participate in Architectural Design Strategy Sessions: Strategy sessions to determine how to approach projects are vital to the development cycle. And in a strategy meeting for a Django project, it goes without saying that at least one of the participants must be a skilled Django developer.

What skills should a Django developer have?

It’s evident that a lot rides on the shoulders of a Django developer in any company, from developing websites and building APIs to keeping security systems operational. Ensuring the money spent to hire Django developers gets you the best call for the ability to identify the crucial skills needed for the job. After all, while it’s fair to recognize that no single developer is Django-omniscient, the job still has to be done at least excellently, which requires some basic skill sets. So, what core skills are needed to work with Django effectively and efficiently?

  • Command of Relevant Programming Language: The first thing you need to check for before you hire a Django developer is their level of finesse with Python—finesse because web development is also an art form. You don’t just need to know how to use a programming language; you need to be able to use it innovatively. This means understanding the syntax, functions, naming conventions, threading constraints, and multi-process architecture.
  • Command of the Django Framework: It’s true that if you understand Python, you can handle almost any Python-based framework, including Django. However, to work with Django, especially at a high level, the developer must also know the framework itself. It may be based on Python, but it also has its own code directories and packages, in addition to unique naming conventions. They must also have some experience with front-end technologies like HTML5 and JavaScript, which are crucial for user-facing integrations.
  • Skill with Using Front-end Technologies: Handling front-end development requires more than just being familiar with technologies like JavaScript, AJAX, and HTML5. It also requires integrating these technologies with the backend logic of the framework. Ideally, you should hire Django engineers who can handle this independently. However, if your firm already has some front-end devs on the payroll, Django developers can work closely with them to perform these integrations.
  • Understanding of Digital Security Infrastructure: Security implementation for projects is one of the jobs a Django developer must take on. This means they must be familiar with all relevant security systems and their backend and frontend aspects. Crucial features like authentication and authorization between multiple systems, servers, and frameworks come to mind. Additionally, you want to ensure your active candidates understand the relevant legalities of website security compliance, referrer policy, and other nitty-gritty that will help your company keep abreast of data security laws.
  • Knowledge of Databases and Version Control: One of Django’s key strengths that we have discussed is its scalability, especially with regard to databases. If you want your Django-built websites to scale effectively, you want to hire a Django developer with a strong mastery of database handling. They must be able to understand and use Django’s ORM to interact with relational databases such as MySQL and PostgreSQL. Additionally, knowledge of Django’s database routing feature is also crucial, as it enables better scaling via per-app assignment of update requests. Moreover, you also need them to be familiar with version control systems, such as Git, which help track changes to codebases.
  • Problem-solving, Communication, and Interpersonal Skills: Technically, these are more like soft skills that Django developers for hire should have. But given their importance to executing any web development project, they are really no less important than the core skills. When trying to hire a Django developer, you need to know they have the wit to handle any problem, the communication skills to convey their ideas effectively to executives and colleagues alike, and the capacity to coordinate productively with the rest of their team.
