This is a great book. Django has now stabilised sufficiently that it is possible to write a book covering its usage and worth buying such a book. If you have good linux sys admin skills you can pick it up and easily work through it. I recommend you purchase another book like 'Practical Django Projects' and start working through those projects after you have finished 'The Definitive Guide to Django'. The definitive guide covers a lot of ground and you will certainly need to concentrate but I doubt you will find a better book with which to learn Django so long as you already have some experience in the programming, web development sys admin area. If you are a beginner I would start somewhere else.

A very good reference for Django developers from the Django developers. Clear snippets of code help describe the topics being discussed.

However, this book is available free from the official django website. I bought it thinking there'd be more content matter than the online version simply because I was a paying customer. Yet I couldn't see any difference between the paid-for kindle version and the free online version....

Save your money and download the free edition, the kindle version certainly isn't worth the price being asked.

I'm new to using Django so a thorough overview of web development using the framework was very helpful! Yes, online documentation always helps but having a paper book you can flick through when you've got some spare time or need to look up a snippet is very handy.

If you're looking to start developing in Django, then this book is great.

This book is packed with just the information you need if you are undertaking a major django project. It's not an introduction. I recommend Bennett (Practical Django Projects) if you are just getting started. You also need to be fluent in Python. See some of my other reviews for python books.

If you are up to the task of writing production django code then you will find that this book covers all the bases and a lot of common special-purpose topics ranging from PDF and RSS to security, caching and internationalization. In short, everything you need to know once you conquered the basics.

Still the best Django book, even though a bit out of date. Quality of production is very poor though with the images barely legible

This is definitely a definitive guide. A lot of content that I've gone back to as my understanding grew. Worth getting.
