The Onion Uses Django, And Why It Matters To Us

Back when I started with Drupal (in the 4.6 or 4.7 days) one of the WOW moments was learning that The Onion (one of America's finest news sites) was being run with Drupal.  I thought, if the Onion was happy with Drupal, then surely it can do things for me.

Turns out that the Onion's tech team have since switched to Django.  The reason was partly because they believe Python to be a better language than PHP, but they also were able to implement a more cleanly designed website.
