Comments about oreilly Introduction to Django:

Usually before selling a professional video tutorial you take a lot of things into consideration, for example, the quality of the audio/video. What the viewer will see in the video (Presentation slides, digital board, life demonstrations, etc,..)

What I saw in the sample video was a single slide for 6 minutes with poor audio/video quality. Maybe the full video is better.. But I will not take this risk and pay 100USD for it.
