Django for Software Development: KUWAITNET's Preferred Choice

Written by Amal Al Tahhan

Selecting the appropriate framework for software development is like building a strong foundation for a skyscraper. Every choice needs to be carefully considered, taking into account aspects like usability, security, scalability, and dependability. Django, an open-source framework for backend web applications built on Python, stands out as an excellent choice. At KUWAITNET, we recognize the importance of this option and strongly support Django for our software development projects.

Since its inception in 2003, Django has evolved into an open-source framework, adding new features with every milestone release. From its 1.0 release in 2008 to its most recent version, 5.0 in 2023, Django has shown incredible progress. With each release, Django has expanded, adding new features, fixing bugs, and supporting a wider range of databases and template engines. At KUWAITNET, we understand the particular challenges and demands faced by various industries, making Django our preferred platform for developing robust websites and software.

Technical Features:

  • Simple syntax
  • Built-in web server
  • Model-View-Controller (MVC) core architecture
  • Batteries included (all necessary components to solve typical scenarios)
  • A Python unit test framework
  • Middleware support
  • HTTP libraries
  • Object relation mapper (ORM)

Why Use Django for Website and Software Development?

Ease of Use & Intuitive Design

Our selection of Django is largely due to its user-friendly and intuitive architecture. At KUWAITNET, we believe that a framework should empower developers and designers rather than impede them. The Django framework achieves this through the following techniques:

  • The DRY philosophy (Don't Repeat Yourself) allows programmers to reuse existing code and concentrate on unique aspects.

  • Django's template system, customization capabilities, and seamless integration with database management systems like MySQL and SQLite enable our teams to develop dynamic and innovative solutions tailored to our clients' needs.

Safe and Secure

By leveraging Django's built-in security features and adhering to best practices, KUWAITNET ensures that our software solutions meet the highest standards of security, instilling trust and confidence in our clientele. Django offers a secure method of managing user accounts and passwords, avoiding common mistakes such as storing passwords directly instead of using a hash or storing session information in cookies. Instead, data is stored securely in the database. By default, Django provides protection against a wide range of vulnerabilities, such as clickjacking, SQL injection, cross-site scripting, and cross-site request forgery.

Reliability, Stability, and Scalability

At KUWAITNET, stability and dependability come first. We are responsible for providing solutions that endure, as our clients entrust us with their most important software projects. Built on top of the sophisticated APACHE2 database, Django's sturdy design aligns perfectly with our commitment to dependability. This ensures that even under high loads, our software applications run efficiently with minimal interruptions or downtime. Additionally, Django encourages related functionality to be grouped into reusable "applications" and, on a smaller scale, relevant code to be grouped into modules (following the Model View Controller (MVC) design).

Django CMS vs. WordPress

While WordPress has long been a popular choice for developing websites, especially for straightforward projects, Django CMS, based on the solid Python foundation, offers numerous features that minimize complexity and speed up the construction of web applications.
