If you have not worked with Django before, I strongly suggest you work through the tutorial tutorial in which you build a simple user poll application. There is also a nice e-book about Django once you get into the project a little more. The documentation for Django can be found online and I suspect you can also find it using Python’s built-in documentation feature. Keep an eye out for my additional Django-related posts.
Note: since I originally posted these articles several of my clients started asking for functionality I did not have time to implement. I transitioned their websites over to Joomla and took my personal website with it to gain additional experience with the CMS. I still think Django is a superior platform for developers like me, but without sufficient time to dedicate to the development, I had to resort to something pre-built.
