Python is an interpreted, object-oriented programming language with dynamic semantics. Its high-level built-in data structures, combined with dynamic typing and dynamic binding, make it very attractive for Rapid Application Development (RAD), as well as for use as a scripting or glue language to connect existing components together.
Python is used successfully in thousands of real-world business applications around the world, including many large and mission critical systems such as Google, YouTube.com, Industrial Light & Magic, University of Maryland, Firaxis Games and RealEstateAgent.com.
Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.

Mezzanine is a powerful, consistent, and flexible content management platform (CMS). Built on the Django framework, Mezzanine provides a simple yet highly extensible architecture that encourages rapid development.
