Build a Django content management system, blog, and social networking site with James Bennett as he introduces version 1. You’ll work prjects the development of each project, implementing and running the applications while learning new features along the way. Web frameworks are playing a major role in the creation of today’s most compelling web applications, because they automate many of the tedious tasks, allowing developers to instead focus on pfactical users with creative and powerful features.

Python developers have been particularly fortunate in this area, having been able to take advantage of Django, a very popular open-source web framework whose stated goal is to “make it easier to djnago better web applications more quickly with less code. Readers follow along with the development of each project, implementing and running each application while learning new features along the way. This edition is updated for Django 1. James Bennett is a web developer for the World Company of Lawrence, Kansas, and is a major contributor to the Django project.

His current role practicaal the Django community is as the software project’s release manager. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

I like the Django framework a lot, and really wanted to like this book, but I’m afraid it was pushed to market long before it was ready. There are several cases in the book where I projectss the author introduces something, but leaves off pertinent information required to override Django defaults and get what he suggested to work e.


Also, there are many places in the book where the author is describing code, but doesn’t state very clearly where the code should go. Finally, the author refers to the book’s accompanying source code, but that source code doesn’t exist.

Practical Django Projects

The publisher told me a month ago that they’ve been in contact with the author, and that the source code will be available “shortly,” but it is still unavailable. How many months has the book been out? On the plus side, I think the author’s projects are useful, and with the exception of his use of Markdown for submitting blog entries in my opinion, he should have showed the use of TinyMCE there as wellwell thought out.

I also think the author does a good job of introducing the reader to a wide range of Django knowledge. I’m taking one star away for the lack of clarity in several areas, and one away for the missing source code.

If the publisher had fixed the ambiguities, missing information, and had the source code available prior to release, this could easily have been a five-star book for learning Django. In my experience, the purpose of this book is extremely unusual in programming books.

Most of them are either an introduction to the topic, or a reference book like a ‘cookbook’ or what basically amounts to a printed version of the online documentation. Those books get the job done for people with a project or an employment position in mind. They learn what they need to do to use the technology, then they get practica work. We should all know by now that reading a book doesn’t actually teach you anything — you practicall to go out and actually apply that knowledge to really “know” the technology.

But what if you want to learn to use Django, but don’t have a project in mind? How cool would it be if one of the core Django developers created a couple of fully-functional applications, step-by-step, and let you follow along? That’s exactly what James Bennett has done here. You can literally be brand-new to Django and finish this book having written multiple Django applications, learning all the major functionality of Django along the way, and even implementing best-practices for creating reusable applications.

If you’ve been working with Django for any length of time, a lot of this book will feel like review, because it does explain templates, views, URLs, models, and the MTV concept. However, there’s a lot in here for you as well. Here are some of the cool things in this book that you don’t find in any of the standard documentation sources: In conclusion, if you’re brand-new to Django and want a yellow-brick road to pgojects down, here it is.

If you’re an experienced Django programmer, you don’t need this book, but I practically guarantee you’d learn a couple of things you didn’t know.


It will fill in all the gaps and you’ll really be able to do pretty much anything in Django. I came to leave a review for this book and was a little shocked by the other reviews. I found this book to be a great second step in my learning Django. I am new to Django, but not new to programming. I have been playing with Python for about a year now part-time, so I am still learning Python concurrently with Django.

I have built my first production website using Django and was impressed by how little code it took to build a fairly flexible website and application. In regards to the code not working or not being freely accessible for this book, I think that if you need the code from this book you are not ready for this book.

Practical Django Projects by James Bennett

My meaning is that this book is trying to teach you how to fish and it sounds like you want the fish. I picked djangk a great deal on how to extend Django in small but powerful ways. I first tried Ruby on Practicao and thought it was awesome! Especially coming from the over verbose, massive framework world of Java, Hibernate, Struts, etc.

I really like Python over Ruby and decided that I wanted to develop with that language and so I started playing with Django.

Django just does not have the documentation that RoR does, which is a bummer technical term. It would be nice to have more Django documentation. If you are new to Django and Python not a Python guruI think this is a really good second book to buy.

Why did I not give fjango 5 stars, well 5 stars is basically perfection and the book is good not perfect.
