I'm looking at django mainly. I hope the veterans jump in with the
latest on these. The django book (written by the developers) comes out
12/7. Django comes with its own little server so that you don't have
to set up Apache on your desktop to play with it. Configuration is
tricky at first, but what fun to code a web app in Python instead of
looking up php commands all day.

Drafts of the django book are available at the site. I would follow
the examples in the book instead of the tutorial. The tutorial works,
but I seemed to learn more using the examples in the book.

As for performance, see the page on caching. I barely understand the
server dynamics but you can find pages and sites comparing dango
performance to ruby on rails.
