“Malcolm Tredinnick shares a terrific rant against the misunderstanding and misuse of the Model-View-Controller design pattern. In particular he takes issue with the notion that Django should be considered an MVC framework. He says that ‘It’s as valid as saying it’s a “circus support mechanism,” since the statement is both true, in some contexts, and false in others (you can definitely use Django-based code to help run your circus; stop looking so skeptical).’ I’m not sure I agree with the entire piece, but it is a very good read.”

We recently discussed another look at the bending and stretching of MVC patterns in the world of Web development.
