Django Nomenclature

The first basic thing to know is Django doesn’t use the MVC nomenclature like Symfony2 and others do. It uses MTV – model, template, view. For the most part same thing, different name.

Other naming conventions are pretty much the same – you’ve still got config files, database fixtures, routing, static files (js, css, images, etc.), logs, tests, etc.

It’s how these are implemented where the differences become apparent.
