Most importantly, this book is not a starter guide to Django and it is not a tutorial. You will need a fair bit of familiarity with Django, Python, Database design, and Object-oriented programming before you will need this book.
There are honestly not a lot of starter books for Django, so your best bet is to probably do the official tutorial from djangoproject.org and build from there. I am about two years into using Django and there are topics in this book that I have not used yet, but it is good to at least familiarize with them.
This book is about 50% longer than the Django 1.5 version, so there is some recycled information, but a lot of new stuff as well. It is a great reference book if you're wanting to do something like a security checklist for your project.
Also, both the 1.5 and 1.6 books promote the use of Class-Based Views. Inheritance and Mixins with Class-Based Views help focus your design in a very re-useable fashion. I have not found these promoted in any of the other Django guides I have, and there is a minority that doesn't like Class-Based-Views. I, personally, have found them useful.
As a web developer, I have read books across a few different languages, but for a high-level book, Two Scoops of Django (for 1.6) is one of the most approachable. The authors have done a great job of adding enough code examples, explanations and even external web links to keep you well informed on the happenings of Django 1.6. Tips on how you should be coding (development environments, production, version control, etc) are also universal to any language.
Also, as a postscript to the authors, the Django community needs a tutorial book as well by both of you! I trudged through a Django 1.0 tutorial book in Django 1.4 as a newbie web developer, and a best practices tutorial book in Django 1.6 would be great!
But otherwise it’s a great collection of useful hints and howtos to make our code and setup better.
It's well written in a whimsical tone that's very approachable and fun to read compared to most technical references. The book features ice cream themed references and examples to help demonstrate the practices. It reads very quickly, not dragging on any subject for more than a few pages. There's plenty of links to background or detail for those motivated to dive deeper. For a book focused on best practices, it goes to great lengths to provide perspective on the recommendations, offering alternatives and citing key contributors for justifications. Use these recommendations as a starting point for teams to define standards and practices while allowing some leeway to customize or tailor to specific preferences.
Written by two experienced developers, the book presents each major topic in a concise, user friendly way. The authors pull on their experience to highlight approaches, tools, and tips that will save a developer valuable time while increasing code quality. Recognizing that there can be more than one practical approach on certain topics, they do a great job of alternative tools and approaches when a topic merits. When presenting alternatives, they point out the pros and cons as well as offer guidance on when to choose a particular approach.
New developers: this is a great book to reach for after completing the official Django tutorial. Experienced developers: the update gives an excellent reference of current best practices, reminders, and tips in a clear, friendly way.
