Yet another Python web development framework comparison

If you're still sitting on the fence about the right web framework here's another comparison post describing Django, Pylons and TurboGears.

Python web development and frameworks in 2007

I don't understand why the poster thinks that the TurboGears community is in 'decline'. All I see is that there are more subscribers on the mailing list than ever (3 times as many as for Pylons).

Google Developer Podcast

The only podcast that I regurarly listen to nowadays is The Java Posse. Recently Google launched a developer oriented podcast called the Google Developer Podcast. Since Dick Wall and Carl Quinn from the Posse are participating in the GDP it's almost like listening to a special edition of the Java Posse. For me this is a very good thing.

When I started going to the gym more I subscribed to tons of different podcasts: Python411, Drunk and Retired (Java), Digg Nation, Floss Weekly, etc. In the long run however I found that most of them are too unprofessional for my taste or don't have the right topics and especially signal to noise ratio. So I ended up listening to them only occasionally and stuck with the Posse in the last few months.

Are there any good developer podcasts you recommend?

Django, TurboGears, Pylons comparison

It doesn't even try to be "scientific" but I still found this comparison of the currently popular Python web frameworks very informative:

Unscientific and biased comparison of Django, Pylons, and TurboGears
