Over the course of the past two months, I read the fine book Two Scoops of Django: Best Practices for Django 1.5 cover to cover two times.
This book, written and edited by Daniel Greenfield and Audrey Roy (the folks behind DjangoPackages.com) as well as numerous Django experts with years of professional experience on the platform, is currently available as Paperback or ebook. Our shop got it from Amazon as a Paperback and I couldn't wait to read it once I heard that the book was coming.
The book is easy to follow and forms a rather comprehensive collection of best practices and advice sprinkled with 3rd-party package suggestions and useful warnings.
I guess this one could save the beginning and/or intermediate Django developer quite some time, learning lessons that others have learned the hard way. And even for the more seasoned Django developers, this book can be a good read too. Make sure you checkout the reviews section on the Two Scoops website too.
I can recommend this book to anyone being involved in Django development and I am really looking forward to the next version.
