    12 We have used many Web development techniques before. Fore some time we where quite happy with WebWare in 2004 it looked like Webware was about to die. Back then we had a need for low performance super-easy deployment and came up with our own little CGI based framework. When we grew out of that we shopped for Web Frameworks and ended up in implementing 30.000 LoC or so in Ruby on Rails. We found it harder to build easy to understand and easy to maintain systems in Ruby than in Python. Since we were building applications to last at least 10 years they must be easy to understand and maintain. New Programmers should be able to work on the codebase with minimal training.

    1414We decided to go for Python since the language and the community have a tight focus on readability, clean design and good documentation. Django by then emerged as the framework aligning very well with these goals.
