Let's say you worked through the feature list and landed on using Rails or Django as your server side...
I'm naturally a Django developer and have been for a few years now. In that time I'd like to think I've gotten pretty good at both Python and Django. During the time I've worked with Django I have helped to build apps ranging from personal health records to sites designed to connect developers with designers.
