I recommend looking at Django as well. These frameworks do an excellent
job (IMO) of relieving you of the petty, error-prone stuff that goes
with any web app, such as authentication, input validation, ORM
(database mapping layer), session management, and so on. This is a huge
win, especially as your application scales up in size and complexity.
Before switching to Python+Django, I worked for several years with PHP
and unfortunately was never able to find a decent framework whose "work
flow" matched my own. It was in part a language issue -- PHP has some
ugly design warts -- but much of it was the design philosophies of the
YMMV, but I would choose Python over PHP for any non-trivial web app.
