In Detail

Django is a powerful Python web framework designed for rapid web application development. With the advent of frameworks such as Django, web developers have been forced to adopt MVC architectures and are encouraged to develop quality code. This quality allows several developers to work together easily and reduces the number of bugs due to human errors.

Beginning with the basics of the Web and Django, the book explains the MVC pattern. It then moves on to explain the step-by-step installation of Python, PIP, and Django on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS. Furthermore, you will learn how to create templates, models, forms, and so on. After reading the book, you will be able to quickly create dynamic web applications with AJAX and an admin part.

This book features a step-by-step approach that shows you how to program, create, and improve the quality of web applications using Django, with the help of Python.

    Comments about oreilly Django Essentials:

    Code examples don't work (in Windows) after chapter 3 (Hello World) this makes the book pretty useless for learning as all you get is error messages. Would agree with the first review that some important points get glossed over hence having to work around in the dark getting the examples to function.

    Comments about oreilly Django Essentials:

    This book tends to very briefly skip over the each of the areas. It tries to cover far too much, too quickly, without properly explaining things. A lot of code is used with only comments to explain what was happening. This was quite often insufficient though.

    I found the code quite difficult to read (ebook), which was mostly down to the formatting and layout. It wasn't clear if it was a comment or actual code due to the wrapping of text. Maybe the paper book presents this in a more readable format.

    I had a small amount of knowledge of Django before starting, but this book left me more confused by the end.
