<FlameSuit> I have worked with both Zope and Django. When I worked with
Zope, it had a lot of powerful features like their version of interfaces and
zodb (zope object database - think of a high performance dictionary) but the

learning curve was very high. After a couple of weeks of messing with it, my

partner and I drop it for Django. Django allows you to get up and doing
work in a couple of hours instead of a couple of days or weeks. If you are
under any time constraints and do not have experience with either one, go
with Django.</FlameSuit>
