Overview

"The aim of this book is to guide you toward becoming a more effective developer, regardless of whether you're new to web development or an old hand. This book explains the technical details of developing applications with Django, but more importantly, it shows you how Django can help you write clean, flexible code with an eye toward reusability." The book is organized around three useful projects: a content management system, a blog, and a social code-sharing site. The process of building each one will expand your knowledge of Django and of best practices for high-quality application development. As you progress through these projects, you'll come to understand each of Django's major components, from database interaction and server-side processing all the way up to form handling for user interaction and HTML templating for presentation. Along the way, you'll also learn how Django's application architecture can lead to powerful and flexible applications that you'll be able to use and reuse whenever you need them. You'll pick up key principles of application design that you'll be able to apply to improving your own code.

    Excellent cookbook

    Excellent cookbook. I followed some of the designs to build a working site, always in tandem with what's already available online. I found author to be concise and provide structure to learn Django concepts. Book is structured to introduce a generally proficient programmer into world of web-based MVC programming, with core focus on getting things done, and generously using 3rd party libraries when useful.

    I'd recomment it to a Django noob.
