"Django enabled us to build a revenue-generating project in 7 weeks"
We were working with a major french investment manager around innovative asset management solutions. We produced several applications allowing advisors to show investment simulations to their clients, and let them play with it. The whole backend of those applications is built upon several Python microservices, each specialized on a certain job, keeping them really simple and easy to work on for several teams. As an example, we got a microservice only handling the huge database and exposing data. Another one is taking care of sending emails for all the apps.
Using Python let us develop these modules rapidly and made it easy to create new backends on the fly. Furthermore, thanks to SQLAlchemy (an open source database library) we had no issue handling the massive database of our clients.
