On December 3, 2005, Ruby and Python developers from Chicago and vicinity gathered at DePaul University to hear two of the leaders in rapid Web-application development debate the merits of each other’s frameworks.

Adrian Holovaty, one of the creators of the Django framework for Python, and David Heinemeier Hansson, the creator of Ruby on Rails framework, answered questions about their work and the future of Web-application development.

The event was recorded, and this page now serves as an archive of the event. At the time, both Django and Rails were quite new, and it's interesting to view this from a historical perspective.
