Pros and Cons of Django Framework for App Development

See the original posting on DZone Python

Python is the 3rd most popular programming language in 2020. It is a powerful, dynamic, syntax-simplified, programming language used for high-level web application development and machine learning apps. And if you know about Python, you’ve probably heard of Django web framework – the most used Python framework. Django development has gained much fame due to its computation capabilities. 

Today, Django stands as one of the most used web development frameworks. Developers widely prefer Django web development for its “batteries included” philosophy. It means that as a Django developer, you don’t have to install separate libraries for adding functionalities. Django provides a plethora of features to add standard functionalities in any kind of web application.

See the original posting on The Verge

OnMail — the new email service from Edison Mail — is officially launching today in a public beta, offering the company’s reinvented take on email to the masses.

Edison is best known for its regular email app (which recently debuted a new premium subscription service), but at the end of the day, the original app is effectively just a fresh coat of paint and some additional nice features onto the regular Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, or iCloud mail experience. OnMail, on the other hand, is a more drastic attempt at fixing email from the ground up, offering a wholly new email service that’s designed around privacy and convenience.

Interestingly, OnMail is second major new email service to launch in 2020 with an eye towards fixing…

Samsung’s latest midrange phone has a whopping 7,000mAh battery

See the original posting on The Verge

Samsung has opened up preorders for the Galaxy M51 in Germany, officially confirming that its latest midrange phone has an absolutely massive 7,000mAh battery. It costs €360.01 (about $429), and Samsung’s site says that it expects the phone to start shipping on September 11th. There’s no sign of preorder pages on Samsung’s other regional stores just yet, but a release in India seems likely given that Samsung teased the phone there last week.

At 7,000mAh, it isn’t the biggest phone battery we’ve ever seen. Last year, for example, Avenir Telecom showed off an Energizer-branded smartphone containing a bulbous 18,000mAh battery. But it’s almost unheard of in devices from mass-market manufacturers like Samsung, and we’ll be interested to see…

Jeff Daniels as James Comey | Showtime

After the sad news of Chadwick Boseman’s death, I planned a marathon of his movies this weekend. We’re still definitely planning to re-watch 42 and Get on Up, but so far we can’t stop watching Black Panther.

Boseman is just so magnetic as T’Challa and everything about the movie is as stunning on the sixth or seventh watch as it was the first time— the acting, the cinematography, the music, the costumes, and of course the script— all amazing. If you have not seen it (honestly, why?) you should absolutely remedy that as soon as possible.

In addition to four other trailers to check out this week, a bonus:

Black Panther

That’s the original Black Panther trailer from 2017. The movie went on to earn a Best Picture nomination and three Oscar…
