But it's not just a rehash of the ChangeLogs; the most valuable part of the book is that it gives you Best Practices for how to use the Django framework. This isn't a beginner's book to teach you Django, it's one that teaches you how to do Django well once you're past the basics.
Excellent! Thanks Daniel and Audrey for writing it, it must have been a ton of work...
The first few chapters explain how to get set up, but assumes knowledge of command line interfaces, your text editor etc, which is fine. But as soon as it explains the basics of the project-app structure of Django, it then goes into deep detail regarding the settings files, and how to configure based on production vs development environments. This was way beyond both my capabilities and requirements at that stage.
I therefore skipped ahead to the Models Best Practices chapter, which straight away goes into the basics, which apparently involves explaining different inheritance methods, such as abstract base classes, multi-table, and proxy models (the inheritance concept itself is not explained here). This in my mind is not basic, and the technicality of the chapter only increases from there.
It looks to be a great book, but unfortunately will be shelved while I seek out something easier to follow.
3 stars as I cannot judge the quality of the content as it is, only what I think is missing and also that it touted itself as being suitable for beginners and advanced players alike, which I don't believe to be true.
This is NOT suitable for beginners. Avoid if you are just starting out. My advice would be to follow the djangoprojects documentation or seek an easier book.
