It's over between us. You can keep the kitchen sink, but I want my MVC.
With TurboGears, I was able to shed the most heinous FileMaker Pro legacy 'solution' imaginable. It has relationships based on fields that change frequently, causing 'disappearing data.' I replaced it with an easy to maintain TurboGears application. Defunkifying and normalizing many years worth of munged data took twice as long as developing the TurboGears's application itself. TurboGears's excellent set of tools and best-of-breed approach makes it so easy to build applications quickly."
—Isaac Csandl, Manager of Information Technology, Chicago Legal Search, Ltd.
"TurboGears has resulted in significant time savings for rPath. Before it was released, we expected to spend significant time building a Web framework for our rPath Appliance Agent product. TurboGears sharpens our focus on building a quality application; it allows us to provide more value to our customers, rather than reinventing the Web wheel."
—Michael K. Johnson, rPath Founding Engineer and Coauthor of Linux Application Development, Second Edition
"I think this is the first time that a Web framework's functionality has been so obvious."
—Bruce Eckel, Author of Thinking in Java and Thinking in C++
"TurboGears helped me build more complex Web applications more quickly and with fewer headaches than any other framework I've used. Just like Python itself, it made me more productive with a minimal learning curve."
—Quentin Hartman, System Administrator
"TurboGears has changed the way I develop Web applications, from model, to view, to controller. Thanks to the power of TurboGears, I was able to develop the first version of WhatWhat in less than a week of my spare time."
—Jonathan LaCour, Development Team Lead, Optio
"TurboGears has provided a way for me to greatly enhance my productivity by realizing the potential of Web-based agile development with Python."
—Brandon Goldfedder, Vice President of Engineering, Information Extraction and Transport (IET Inc.), and Author of The Joy of Patterns
"TurboGears really changed the way I schedule project releases: It allows me to deliver them faster and with better quality than when I used to use GUI toolkits."
—Jorge Godoy, Owner of G2C Tech Consultoria in Brazil, former Lead Developer for Conectiva documentation team
"With TurboGears, I was able to transition my Python projects into Web applications as easily as possible."
—Benjamin T. Hamilton, Software Engineer
"Norwegian-based company Scanmine AS makes extensive use of Python and Turbo-Gears in all parts of its operation. TurboGears makes it a breeze to build highly sophisticated Web 2.0 applications with out-of-the-box features for multiple languages with full Unicode, REST, AJAX, RSS/Atom, and more. This enables Scanmine to put a face on their technology development in a minimal amount of time.
