These days there's a web framework for everyone. Java, Ruby, PHP, even Scala have their own frameworks. In the Python world, the creation of WSGI (Web Standard Gateway Interface) has exacerbated web framework proliferation; it's just too easy to roll your own. The question is: has WSGI rendered the concept of a framework passe?

TurboGears is a Python web framework that helps the developer by providing an intelligent set of defaults, while enabling the developer to choose his favorite database mapping, templating language, or adjunct WSGI software to add to the stack.

This talk will examine how TurboGears aims to "Make the simple things easy. Make the difficult things possible." while maintaining the idea that choosing your own framework is valuable.
