I haven't really been involved in a Hackathon to date but I'm interested in peoples responses here. I have a side project that I'm working on that is intended for people who need to quickly build an MVP or use as part of a Hackathon. It would be nice to know what features people look for when choosing a framework/boilerplate for a Hackathon.

What are your reasons for choosing Django?

It is really easy to integrate simple css templates and get a database. I mean you have choose something as a backend. So, Django. Are there any nice alternatives?

Yeah I hear a lot of good things about Django, I know enough to build a simple REST API but that's about it. I've had very little exposure with Django/python.

You should definitely try Django.
