Great book... - so long as you have some existing programming skills
on 5 September 2009
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.
