Python Web Development with Django

by Jeff Forcier, Paul Bissex, and Wesley Chun

Sample Content — Django for the Impatient: Building a Blog

As a web developer, you want to program in a language that is powerful, clean, mature, and well-documented, and one that is equipped with a great standard library and a huge selection of high-quality third-party packages. You also want a web framework for that language--one with a vibrant, helpful community of users and developers, and one that is designed to function smoothly as an integrated stack, but whose components are loosely coupled so that you can make substitutions if circumstances require. In short, you want Python and you want Django. This book -- which includes a special "Practical Python for Django" chapter for those who need a language introduction or review -- is designed to help you learn and use Django in real-world settings as easily, quickly, and smartly as possible.
