What can you do with Django?

I want to talk about some of the capabilities of Django and point to some of the bigger tech companies and websites that have either used Django or currently use Django in their tech stack and use them as a reference point to show you what you can do with Django and the type of things that you can build with it.

What can you do with Django?

I want to talk about some of the capabilities of Django and point to some of the bigger tech companies and websites that have either used Django or currently use Django in their tech stack and use them as a reference point to show you what you can do with Django and the type of things that you can build with it.

 

This is kind of a common issue in the industry where people think that they need a certain tech stack or a language to be successful so I'll reword it and I'm assuming this person is just curious and doesn't understand too much about programming, I'm not trying to insult them but I did want to address it so I'll paraphrase it but they said please promote a language which gives you a real chance to start businesses like PHP.

 

PHP is great and you can do a lot with it and so can you with Django along with no GS or Ruby on Rails and a lot of other stuff out there, no one language will make you successful as long as you pick something popular out there that you can learn from and that suits your style and fits the needs that you're trying to accomplish some of these do certain things better than others but just to address that comment.

 

I'm going to list out some of the tech companies that use Django so if I go through my list here I listed out five we have Instagram Pinterest Udemy Dropbox and Spotify, that should give you an idea of the type of websites that can be built with it and the scalability.

I believe over a million users with Django do not agree with me, but this is what I found on Google just by doing a quick search and just doing some research on companies that use Django.

 

There's a lot of big tech companies that use Django that have already you done the groundwork for us they have proven to us that we can build it and most of us are not going to be building these applications but you can always scale these and then adjust later but the framework should not be your worry as long as you can make it work.

 

Another one I recommended you go to Stack Overflow or go to LinkedIn and look up jobs that are hiring for Django developers and you will see the type of websites or applications that these people are building.

 

People always ask me what type of or can I build a certain type of website and they will say things like can I build a social network can I build an e-commerce website like Amazon? and the answer to all of those is yes if you go ahead and apply it along with the text acts that are required with it.

 

For example if you wanted to build an e-commerce website you can use Django to accomplish most of the things that you need maybe you'll use a front-end library like react or you just want to use a vanilla JavaScript.

 

Django will build out a good back-end and can scale for you?

The answer is of course yes you can do a lot with that and build out most of the things that you can think of with Django so you can even go as far as mobile applications, not that jingle will handle all that for you but it will provide a back-end.

 

If you wanted to use a framework like react native or flutter or any other way to build an app you can use Django to build out that API and connect with it and use it as the data source and handle inputs and outputs of the data itself.

Django can definitely handle all of that and again he's just used some of the companies out there as a reference point especially some of the bigger ones to see that yes you can't scale I think Instagram is a pretty good example of showing you how big an application can get.

 

The last thing I wanted to leave you with here is again just to address that and say that you don't need a specific tech stack but Django can do it for you but do whatever suits you and fits whatever you're trying to do so if you're looking for a job find a language or framework that has a lot of job openings and you're comfortable with actually learning so go ahead and do it.
