Yup - I like this idea around "memorising vs. understanding". Understanding is far more flexible and widely applicable. Memorising the individual quirks and tricks of a framework is fragile and narrow.

Yes and me being New to this it seems strange to me to use frameworks so much. Are you so bad at it that you can not develop one? Your own way of doing things I guess... Maybe it is really that complex and maybe frameworks are needed but learning django is driving me crazy.

In my experience (mainly of Ruby), some languages just don't have an ecosystem that allow you to escape a framework.

From what I hear Django is quite a heavy weight framework. Could you look for something a little more lightweight in Python?
