Hello there and thanks for tuning in for this month's roundup! Last time, we discussed CRUD applications and what the DZone community is building with this approach to developing apps. In this month's post, we're taking a look at using Python as a web development language. We examine the benefits of using Python as the main language in your web application, some processes to follow to simple, Python-based apps, and a few resources to check out to learn more about this powerful language.
