Summary and Info
If you're new to Django and want to learn quickly how to use this powerful framework or, if you're like me and want to get your hands dirty on a small project to get you up to speed, then this is the book you should buy! Let me say this again so not to leave any room for doubts: I am wholeheartedly recommending this book!
I wish more books were written like "Django 1.0 Website Development": You start off with an idea for a full blown project and as you progress through the chapters, you build this project from scratch to its completeness! This is not a reference book and you should already know what Django is, etc, etc.
Each chapter builds onto the next one, giving you a full sense of developing a web application from the ground up, all the while learning some cool techniques such as adding AJAX-y effects and doing in-place searches and editing of information.
By the time you're done with it, you will wish this book had more than 12 chapters!
