A nice reference, but not as good as the web version for learning Django

I wanted to give this book more stars, but I just can’t. As a reference book for Django developers, it’s excellent. As a beginner’s guide to learning Django, it fails because Apress didn’t make a sufficient effort to ensure that the book made it to bookstores without show-stopping errors and/or omissions in the book’s source code. For a somewhat experienced Django developer, the errors are simple and easy to identify and fix. For a person using this book to learn Django for the first time, it’s a show-stopper because it means a lot of wasted time and confusion over code that isn’t working when the problem isn’t the student but a failure by the teacher.
Good reference book

Despite the django team doing everything in their power to make sure that online tutorials are so out of date that they cannot be used, this book is reasonably up-to-date and quite useful as a reference book when learning django.
Excellent guide to the inner workings of Django 1.1
This is a great book because the authors makes a lot of the details of Django very clear and easy to understand to the reader.
If you had to limit yourself to one Django book…

I’ve been working with Django full-time for the past nine months. Just from my day-to-day work, I’ve learned most of what’s in this book (with major help from the official Django documentation and the mailing list), but I’d just been using this book as a reference. I finally took the time in the past week to read this book cover-to-cover, and it’s fantastic. It really filled in the gaps in my knowledge, and gave me a deeper understanding of what’s going on in the background when I use the Django features I touch every day.

I started reading it as a tutorial, but soon switched to just using it as a reference manual in conjunction with Django web documentation. I have found that no one resource answers the questions. Also, it looks to me that the database update methods have been changed since the book was published and it is useful to be aware of it.
a very book to start with if you are new to django.

I am a software engineer but new to django. I found this book is well organized and clearly written. The examples and exercises help me understand the concepts quickly. If you follow through the book and do some of the exercises, you will feel very comfortable and confident in working with django by the time you reach the end of the book.
Must have for Python web development
If you trying to develop your website using python. You must learn Django in the first place. It gives you whole and clear vision of web development using Python and MVC structure. If you start to learn Django, you should have this guide kept by your side as a reference and learning guide, or you can have an electronic version(I prefer paper). Written by those guys who invented Django, there’s no reason you should ignore it!

The book is great, it tells specifically how to apply Django (no beating around the bush, no stupid joking, etc, etc). Also, the books contains invaluable examples explain in great detail.
Great book for learning Django, altough the book is already available for free on the web
