about the book

Django in Action teaches Django from scratch. All you need to get started are some basic Python skills. Chapter by chapter, you’ll construct a complete multi-user website for RiffMates: a classified ads site aimed at rocking musicians. The book starts with Django’s basics and works through all of the core concepts of the framework until you’re comfortable and confident creating your own web apps. As you go, you’ll dive into great third-party libraries from the Django community that let you customize Django. You’ll even learn how to use Django with single-page web apps, REST APIs, and more.
