The family’s all arriving or here already and it’s a hectic crazy house going on. The apartment is under attack by people attempting to clean (NOOOO) and cook. Graduation less than 24 hours away… yay!

    (Paperback) I've been working with Django full-time for the past nine monhts. 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.If I had read this book six or eight monhts ago, it would have saved me a lot of time, and I would have written more reusable code. I say six or eight monhts instead of since the beginning because I really felt like I was able to get the most out of this book because I intimately understood the framework. If I had never used Django before reading this it would still have been fantastic, but to really get the full benefit I would have had to read it again once I had more Django under my belt.If you're brand-new to Django, I recommend this learning path:1. Do the official tutorial first as the bare-minimum.2. If you have projects in mind, do them! If not, get James Bennett's in which he walks you through creating and enhancing fully-functional Django applications using the best practices of the community.3. With that Django experience, read this book cover-to-cover. You'll be able to do pretty much anything you want with Django at that point.
