  15. 15. STEELKIWI A list of possible Python & Django framework interview questions (part 1): ● What is the Python Standard Library? What are some of the useful Standard Library modules? ● What styles of inheritance does Python have? ● What is RMO? ● How does Django work? ● Explain the MVC pattern in Django. What’s peculiar about the MVC model in Django? ● What key features are available in Django? ● How are requests and responses processed in Django? ● What are Django middlewares and when should you use them? ● What databases does Django support? ● How do you set up a database in Django?
  16. 16.

  17. 17. Review the web development technology stack
  18. 18. STEELKIWI Another important thing is the company’s technology stack Python companies are generally multifunctional because of the programming language they use. Python allows developers to build and maintain scalable systems. Companies with good expertise will offer a wide range of technology stacks or will specialize in specific areas. This expertise should include the best Python frameworks. Developers should know how to work with libraries, extensions, and APIs. When you first get in touch with a Python development company, ask what technology stack they typically use. Every programming language has its standards. You should also inquire as to whether companies keep to those standards. Common standards for Python are described in the official Python Guidelines.
  19. 19. Request a quote
  20. 20. STEELKIWI There are three popular pricing models companies work with: fixed price, time and materials, and milestone. Your estimate may vary depending on the pricing model you choose. Experienced developers can estimate the number of hours necessary to implement all features. However, to make this possible your team must have a requirements document that lists features. If you don’t have this document, you can ask a third party to write it for you. You can also ask the company you’re hiring to write project requirements for you. Mind that this service will likely also be billed. Remember that testing should also be included in your quote, as it’s an integral part of the software development process.

STEELKIWI DOS ● Navigate the сompany’s website to get a feel for what they do and who they work with. ● Read the company blog to find out more about their expertise and aspirations. ● Check how active the company is on social networks like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to get an idea of the brand and its identity. ● Read client reviews and look at ratings on freelance marketplace platforms to know what clients say about the Python/Django team you’re interested in. ● Write an email to see how the company responds. ● Schedule a call or a meeting to see if they’re open for discussion. ● Check if the company has a Dribbble or Behance account to learn about their UI/UX capabilities. ● Hear what the company has to say about your project to see if they’re excited to work with you.
  25. 25. STEELKIWI DON’TS ● Don’t hire a development team based on price alone because cheap doesn’t always mean high quality. ● Don’t always trust claims that a team can use any technology and has experience in everything because developers can’t embrace all technologies at once. ● Don’t hire software development company that’s hesitant to jump on a voice or video call because it may mean they aren’t interested in working with you. ● Don’t hire a Django development company that just wants to get the job done and doesn’t care about your goals and the future of the product.
