As a self taught developer I don’t have the experience of other developers to draw off, this book is a godsend.
It’s not a beginner ‘how to’ book, if you want to learn Django make this the second book you read.
The content is incredibly thorough and extensive, but also still very accessible. Many documented practices are fairly independent of each other, so even if you decide to diverge from the authors' opinions in some area, that doesn't reduce the value of the rest of the book. However, you'll find that a rare issue, because the practices from this book are clearly motivated.
I wish every technical book was written like this.
Although it is aimed at those with Django experience, it's also invaluable for somebody starting to develop Django, as it will prevent you from making loads of mistakes. It's written in a clear pedagogical way, and having this book will effectively add a year or two of Django experience to your knowledge.
If you develop Django, you *have* to have this book.
Written in a friendly and fun style, the examples used stick with a single topic throughout which helps.
Very much recommended.
The opinions expressed are wise and authoritative and confident but never dogmatic or condescending. The advice is the product of years of experience on the part of the authors and their colleagues and friends in the django community. That's why I see this book as being like a masterclass: It is for advanced students to glean the wisdom of the masters.
One of the many things I loved about this book was that it seems that it was put together with patience and thought. It is the opposite of the many "rush to market" books that are thin and shallow in their content and are little more than hastily put together bundles of otherwise publicly available information on the internet.
I highly recommend this for anyone seriously involved in the development of django based projects. However, I would also recommend it for beginners, when accompanied by another more introductory text. Even beginners will quickly encounter the topics and issues that are discussed in depth here, and it is good to have the wisdom of the sages at hand from the beginning.
Two Scoops of Django solves this problem for the Django web framework: from recommended project layouts right up to advice on publishing your own Django packages, 2scoops is a perfect companion for any Django developer, beginner or expert.
I'm certain plenty of web frameworks are envious that the Django community has Danny and Audrey, the authors, who have dedicated their time giving the community something that is desperately needed.
For anyone who has just finished the tutorial, to the expert asking "Is this really the best way to do this in Django?" this book is perfect.
