Python Django Development

Based on Django we like to develop web applications and systems that have to cover special processes or very individual requirements or communicate a lot via interfaces, so-called APIs (advanced programming interfaces).

Django is a Python-based free open source framework used to development web-based applications. The framework already exists since 2005, is constantly being developed and is often used in professional environments as a basis for Python-based web development.

Which services regarding Python Django development do we offer?

As Django developers we have many years of experience and comprehensive knowlege. Our customers come from different industries and approach us with a wide variety of projects and tasks.

Since the first days we work using this web framework as well as the programming language Python, as its foundation. We are happy to fit our tasks and services individually to your needs, wishes and ideas. You can find an overview of the Python projects we have already implemented in the past years as Django developers in our references section.

Full-Service

In Django software development we are able to serve the full stack as project managers, developers and devops.

We may provide you with services in all areas, from gathering requirements, IT consulting, software design, project planning and management to implementation, automated testing, deployment, hosting and operation & support.

This means that we are able to provide you with full support in the implementation and operation of your application.

Long-term cooperation

Long-term cooperation is important to us, as it seems to be the case with our customers as well. So we had the opportunity to accompany the majority of our customers and projects after the project implementation for several years or relaunches.

Not least because of this long-term approach, we are interested in good, resilient and sustainable concepts. Because of that we want to develop a solid, easily planned and cost-efficient IT solution for you as well as for ourselves.

Industry giants like Instagram, Spotify, Youtube, Dropbox, Mozilla or Pinterest are useing Django for their services. We at Webrunners have been developing using Django since 2008 and have already developed numerous applications and portals in the business sector.

Python Django - the right technology choice for your web application?

We have full confidence in Python Django. How we proceed in detail, you can read under “How to develop an individual software“.

However, as with any technology, you have to consider whether Python Django fits perfectly to the software project. Therefore we have compiled some criteria to simplify the choice of technology a little bit.

A completely new concept, a very special process or a product that is constantly being developed and updated. These are all examples of challenges that let you feel comfortable using Django.

With its large ecosystem, Django helps to quickly develop projects of any size. Requirements such as a user and authorization concept or a sophisticated routing or localization system, which are required for almost every large application, are neatly solved in the corresponding Django modules.

Once the application architecture and the database design have been defined in Django, the framework automatically generates the base application structure, the database and a simple administration interface, through which all relevant database fields can be edited. Thus the basic framework of the entire application is set up very quickly and the developer can concentrate on the specialties of the software.

So-called migrations make changes in the data structure easily reproducible. After successful testing, they can be easily executed on the production system and minimize the impact on ongoing operations. In contrast to many database systems, this makes it easier to merge competing states generated in parallel developments.

A content management system such as TYPO3, Drupal or Django CMS is often a more apt choice if editorial content is the main focus of the application. Such systems already have proven concepts such as approval workflows or the formatting and enrichment of content on board for this purpose. The bottom line is that a CMS is the better choice if the main task of the application is the editing and provision of editorial content and the individual share is small.

If the company already uses a different technology stack, it may be more appropriate to write new modules in the same language and architecture in order to be able to make better use of existing expertise in the company.

Django doesn’t really play out its strengths in small projects. When developing very small applications without large dependencies or a module that is to be integrated into an existing micro service architecture, it might be more useful to use a micro framework such as Flask or the aiohttp library integrated in Python3. However, there are also cases where the use of a “heavyweight” framework like Django has more advantages than disadvantages. In case of doubt this has to be dicided individually. We would be happy to consult you.

Django Upgrade

Like any software, Django based projects need to be updated regularly. Here you can find a short overview of the lifecycle of current Django versions.
