Summary
Another plug for Django.

Django is gaining steam big way. Last week, a special baypiggies (Bay Area Python Interest Group) meeting drew huge crowds to listen to Django developer Jacob Kaplan-Moss. (*)

Several Googlers are asking about Django too!

Today, I found this: http://www2.jeffcroft.com/2006/may/02/django-non-programmers/. Could this become Django's killer app?

(*) Now on Google video: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-70449010942275062

I don't quite get the last sentence: "Could this become Django's killer app?" You mean, being designer-friendly?

I'm so used to read "could this become Pythons killer app" in blogs that my eyes just stumbled on the word Django :). Not that I think Python needs to kill something.

I'm excited about what has happened on the Magic Removal Branch, and I'm looking forward to a bright future for Django.

I'm also very excited about what deeper wsgi integration, SQLAlchemy, and CherryPy 3.0, are going to bring to TurboGears. Not to mention the fact that more and more of Zope 3 technology is being componentized in a way that makes it much more attractive for reuse outside of Zope proper.

This is a good time for Python Web Development!

Yesterday I watched a video of a presentation by Jacob Kaplan-Moss: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-70449010942275062&q=type%3Agoogle+engEDU
Is this the thing you are referring to?
After watching this I felt like "let's drop everything and start using Django"

Does anyone have mp3s files of these google presentations? They look great, but I'd like to hear them when I'm telecomuting.
