As one of the co-authors of Two Scoops of Django, I'm often asked questions related to increasing the capability of a Django-powered site to handle high loads. I always respond to these questions with this one, "Have you read 'High Performance Django' yet?" I'm only half-joking when I say that we considered replacing our own chapter on removing bottlenecks with a page that says, "Go buy this book."

This is because "High Performance Django" is a really good book. Its relatively narrow topic means

I was actually a Kickstarter backer of the book, and although it has taken me a while to get around to reading it I was excited to get stuck in after seeing the glowing reviews. Unfortunately I was left disappointed.

First of all it is short, very very short. I read the entire thing, not skimmed *read*, in a couple of hours. The reason for it being so short? They don't go into any sort of depth on anything. As soon as it is just about to get interesting they declare it is "out of scope" or "you

This is a pretty short but to the point book. It doesn't got into very much detail but it does give a high level overview of how the guys at Lincon Loop are running their Django services and that is pretty much invaluable.

No bullshit, all great tips and advice and a great starting point towards getting started building your own high quality stack!

I especially loved the article about Logging, Monitoring and Alerting. It's pretty much required for any large site but so very often overlooked and I

This is a very nice book to know about developing heavy applications using Django. It is all about how to measure things very well, optimize it accordingly and see the results and repeat this process, there are lots of good practices that make this book an awesome read. The tools used in this book are almost all open source that we can freely use.

Great book,
although a lot of what it contains is not django specific, but it's good to have a book which collects all good practices at one place

I had an amazing time reading this book, it was great, I learned a lot about Django scalability and I recommend it to anyone trying to learn on this subject. This book is really worth the price!
