the Django web platform on his blog.
"I mostly ignored Django for most of its life because I thought it was just another web framework. Yawn. Yay. A framework. Joy. Models. Views. Controllers. Oh boy, I think Ill just stick to one of the hundreds I already know.
Then I saw James Tauber talking about Pinax but more importantly, talking about how 2008 was the year of modularity (he used different words). Apparently, Django has been pushing the idea of having discrete applications that act within a site as cooperating but separate components.
The idea is that, unlike other components, these ones act like decoupled little web sites you can put in and configure for a site, and through the magic of HTTP work seamlessly.
