This is one of the main reasons to start learning Django. If we compare Django with other open source technologies, it offers the best documentation in the market.

Better documentation of any technology is like a very well-established library for any developer. There, he can search for any function desired with ease with the time involving in the searching purpose only.

The documentation of any technology is also one of the categories to grade a technology, as it lets other developers other than its own creators to efficiently utilize the technology. Django has been best at documentation from the beginning, from the point it became open source in 2005 to the present date, and the documentation has only been getting better with the active development of technology and it is also offered in different languages. It is an open-source full-stack framework for perfectionists stuck to strict deadlines. It supports Python up to 3.7 versions, so developers can take advantage of the improvements provided in the latest Python releases. Django supports different databases, thus automating and facilitating migration between two databases. Among them are MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, Oracle, and others. Additionally, there are back ends provided by 3rd parties that allow using several other databases with this frameworkDjango supports rapid development and pragmatic design, helps handle traffic and zillions of site views. It is employed in many high-loaded websites, e.g., Reddit Gifts and NASA, and can be used for startups and small-scale websites as well due to rich out-of-the-box functionalities it provides.

In the previous tutorial, we learned the concept of Django Models, now, we will discuss the process to connect the database with the Django project.

Whenever we are creating a web project or any kind of project, we want some kind of input from our end-users or consumers. All that data/ input is handled by a Database. In today’s scenario, whenever we are developing a website, we will need a database, whether it’s a blog site or highly interactive ones like Instagram which is based on Django.

To achieve that you would need some software, which can store that data efficiently and also some middleware that can let you communicate with the database.
