Python has seen a resurgence in programmer interest, and dynamic languages such as Ruby and Python have emerged as alternatives to languages like Java and C#. And the popularity of software such as the Google App Engine, the Django Web framework and the Zope application server has made the language more attractive to developers. This slide show looks at some of the things that make Python a standard for Web application development.
