Strange. I can't think of any reason why Django would not be suitable
for a single developer. Of course the developer has to understand HTML
and probably CSS and JavaScript  but that is no different than any
other web development tool.

which seems to refer to the same talk. I am not a fan of the Django
template language - I think it is too restrictive - but I don't see
how it is harder to use it as a single developer than it would be for
a team...
