I'm starting on the Django tutorial. It seems a bit wordy. Or, perhaps, dense. Maybe I just don't like the dark colors on the site.

There may be a need for frameworks to have concise tutorials for geeks with an understanding of the general concepts, the essence, that cover the same ground as the newbie tutorials and focus on the accidence. Less English, more code. If the need exists, though, it may be very small.

I dislike how both Django and RoR leave unit testing until the relative ends of their tutorials. Bad form. In the future, the second program listing in tutorials and books will involve unit testing "hello, world."
