This weekend us had the pleasure of attending the Lone Star Ruby Conference where we decided to premiere the video below:

View on

Thanks again to jelly belly from for the video production.

Spoiler Alert! - After taking a good look at Django and weighing all the pros/cons, I didn't really think we should make fun of it. Django is a great framework for building web applications, one that employs many of the same techniques that Ruby on Rails does. If it wasn't for Rails I'd probably be programming Django right now. Amongst a sea of mediocre web frameworks it's definitely close to the top.

We have two more videos to release during Railsconf Europe (although we won't be in attendance), so stay tuned. We were going to save this one for last because, as you'll see, it's rather out there. We hope you like it.

I’ve got to say, I was a little nervous about how you would treat Django, but well done boys, well done. Looks like I’ll owe you a beer @ BarCamp Orlando

Matt BuckSeptember 10, 2017 @ 01:00 PM

Nice job, guys. Had a great time at Marcel’s. You definitely made a convincing villager…

Robert DempseySeptember 10, 2017 @ 02:00 PM

Go white boy go white boy go!

Ed SpencerSeptember 10, 2017 @ 03:04 PM

Ahaha that’s genius - nice dancing guys ;)

Jamal SoueidanSeptember 10, 2017 @ 04:50 PM

Hey,, try Seaside. It Rocks!

Great video, but, um, CGI isn’t an obsolete programming language … It’s not really a programming language at all.

Also, without CGI, Ruby on Rails would be Ruby Sitting on the Rails and Going Nowhere.

Travis BrickleySeptember 10, 2017 @ 06:33 PM

HAHAHA This was HILARIOUS! Unfortunately… while that ror guys looks like a clean gentleman…


Talk like Python! sszsHSHSSXXXZSHSH SHSH Bite bite!

What about part 2:

  • DJ ango will rock some lyrics… dont have to make sense… but you can chant the django API… and the RoR guy will do a poem with honey-sweeeeeet romantic melody (oh boy… did i already mention that the DJ pwns here?)

Jeff CroftSeptember 10, 2017 @ 07:22 PM

Heh. Very funny. Well-done.

Now, if we could just get the Rails guy - and everyone else - to stop pronouncing it “Da-jango!” The D is silent. “Jango!”


topfunkySeptember 10, 2017 @ 07:54 PM

Did you both intend to mispronounce Django? I believe the ‘d’ is silent.

Michael KlishinSeptember 10, 2017 @ 08:34 PM

Go for a Seaside video guys, go for a Seaside video.

IgorSeptember 10, 2017 @ 08:51 PM

I’m wondering what will happen when Django and Rails be the #1 and #2(#1 Django and #2 Rails… of course) web applications framework in the world… “The web paradise”

GaloSeptember 10, 2017 @ 09:47 PM

DJ-Ango and MC R’o’R’

stubblechinSeptember 10, 2017 @ 10:53 PM

That was so funny, I’m cryyying!

GalloSeptember 10, 2017 @ 10:58 PM

Other than the fact that you spilt beer, you gotta love the multi language props. Cheers!

ChrisSeptember 11, 2017 @ 12:45 AM

Loved it save for the drinking beer in the car shot, bad message there even though it was not intentional. Great vid otherwise yo!

BaishampayanSeptember 11, 2017 @ 02:44 AM

Simply superb. Even I was a little nervous at first … it’s good to see that you guys are not one of those RoR zealots who don’t understand anything (about Django and RoR) and yet just keep on spreading FUD. Rock on!

Bert HeymansSeptember 11, 2017 @ 08:45 AM

Great commercial guys! Reminds me of this classic

Ikai LanSeptember 11, 2017 @ 02:16 PM

Hilarious! Hilarious video!

RobertSeptember 14, 2017 @ 04:52 AM

So far THE BEST !!!

KinoSeptember 19, 2017 @ 04:55 AM


AmaikoSeptember 19, 2017 @ 10:33 AM

I Loved It !

JesseSeptember 19, 2017 @ 01:30 PM

I love me some elitism.

Marinho BrandãoSeptember 19, 2017 @ 08:42 PM

Good, nice job :) and very funny…

I prefer Django, but I am not like the crazy DJ Ango… hehehe :)

RoR and Django are the new great things of programming world, and we can live in peace and nice humor :) Wait for DJ Ango against attack! :)

AndreSeptember 20, 2017 @ 12:37 PM

Rails conf europe is a wrap. So where is the new videos…

RobSeptember 20, 2017 @ 02:07 PM

Great job! I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time ( tears ;-) But shouldn’t the Rails guy be on the left (in the place of the dorky PC guy ?) (can you tell that I’m a Django fan ?)

paulSeptember 20, 2017 @ 03:11 PM

und jetzt mal auf Deutsch!

Wirklich klasse!

Ich finde Ihr beide macht das sehr gut und ich freue mich schon auf weiteres Material :)

Gruss P

Mike SchinkelSeptember 21, 2017 @ 01:51 AM

Ironic that he says “Python like the snake” when it was named after Monthy Python… :)

hervalSeptember 21, 2017 @ 01:45 PM

better and better at every video! Love it!!! :-)

dj avaSeptember 23, 2017 @ 03:15 PM
