Define your data models entirely in Python. You get a rich, dynamic database-access API for free -; but you can still write SQL if needed.
Save yourself the tedious work of creating interfaces for people to add and update content. Django does that automatically, and it's production-ready.
Design pretty, cruft-free URLs with no framework-specific limitations. Be as flexible as you like.
Use Django's powerful, extensible and designer-friendly template language to separate design, content and Python code.
Hook into memcached or other cache frameworks for super performance -; caching is as granular as you need.
Django has full support for multi-language applications, letting you specify translation strings and providing hooks for language-specific functionality.
