Due to limited availability of our conference room, we will be meeting
this month on the *second* Tuesday of the month, March 11.

This month, Brian Turnbull will be talking about Rails and Django,
illustrating differences and similarities by developing a web
application in each framework. Topics for comparison include:

* Application creation
* Model, View, Controller (MVC) components
* Object Relational Mappers (ORM)
* Extending the schema/models
* User Sessions
* Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA)
* Caching

Rails is a full-stack framework for developing database-backed web
applications according to the Model-View-Control pattern.

Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid
development and clean, pragmatic design. [http://djangoproject.com]
