Turbogears and the future of Python web frameworks

Episode #35, published Tue, Nov 24, 2015, recorded Wed, Oct 28, 2015.

This episode is carbon neutral.
Do you have a new web project coming up? Are you thinking of choosing Django or maybe Flask? Those are excellent frameworks, but you might also want to check out TurboGears. It was created and released around the same time as Django. It lets you starts your project as a microframework (like Flask) and yet can scale up to a fullstack solution (like Django). It also has built-in support both relational DBs (via SQLAlchemy) and MongoDB. This week Alessandro Molina is here to tell us all about TurboGears!
