Quick Post: Django vs Grails

Coming from the Django world, I can already see big similarities.  They both provide database abstraction for example, they allow the developer to essentially create a database and minimize the amount of SQL code needed.  From what I can tell, the two are very similar, and this does excite me.  Also makes me feel at home with Grails.

My temptation however is to compare these frameworks back to PHP, which is a largely unfair comparison.  Therefore, I will leave that discussion for another day.

After downloading Grails, my first impression was installation should be the easiest part of imparting on new framework, with Django, it requires issuing setup and Django takes it away configuring and installing the necessary items.  However, Grails requires a bit more manipulation to get it going.  I found a good resource and should be on my way.  More details as I get further into Grails.

What are PHP and ASP.net?

Recently, I have been having alot of questions about what PHP and ASP.net are and how do they help on a site.

What are PHP and ASP.net? Why do I care?

1. What are PHP and ASP.net?

1. Well, when you want to use a shopping cart, forum, or anything outside of a static website it requires the server to do something. For example, this blog is written in PHP, because I can add blogs and I do not have to edit the html code.

2. What’s the difference between PHP and ASP.net?

1. PHP generally is used by people like us, who design and build websites.

2. ASP.net is generally used by big corporations. They like ASP.net because it is backed and supported by Windows.

3. Now, why do you care?

1. Does your business want to sell products online?

2. Do you want a forum or other social networking system? (Facebook, Myspace, YouTube, etc.)

3. These types of sites require the server to handle parts of your site because html can not do it alone.
