"Why I chose Django over Rails" - Ben Sand

Ben will talk about why he decided to use Python and Django rather
than Ruby on Rails for a web project.
He will then discuss his experiences with Django to-date.

After Ben's talk, there will be an opportunity for others to share
their experiences.

Bio - Ben Sand runs his own on-site IT services business and is
studying computer science. To jump on the Web 2.0 bandwagon Ben had to
decide on a framework for a new business he is involved with. With
only some rudimentary programming and system administration skills at
his disposal Django appeared an excellent choice for his project,
owing to its low barrier to entry and powerful feature set one can
grow into.
