Recommends it for: Anyone doing django
The authors updated the book this morning and I decided to reward their favor with a review.

This book is excellent. Good best practice guidelines for Django delivered with ice cream and examples from personal experience. I'm very happy this is released, it even better than the previous editions. The book is easy reading, but dense information. I love the cover and the interior drawings. If i had a complaint it would be I want more drawings!

Must Read for all django developers.
(Not a beginners' book, some familiarity to django framework is expected)

So far, the book is as great as its previous editions. I'll update the review as I progress in my reading.

Great book - I was initially scared it'd be to difficult for me because I'm a beginner but the book helped me by not only getting a better understanding of Django but also showing many tips and useful packages I'll definitely use on my Django journey! Can't wait for the paperback!

Anything less than 5 stars just feels wrong!

Excellent. Considering yourself a django developer? Go read it, you won't regret it.

This book is essential for anyone who uses Django, whether they're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced user. It's got a permanent place on my desk, and I consult it several times a week.

It isn't a tutorial; rather, it's a reference manual for how to build Django apps that will be secure, easy to use, and compliant with the best practices as we currently know them. Anytime I'm doing something new in Django, or playing with a feature for the first time, I always consult Two Scoops to make sure I

Two scoops of django 1.8 is the best book if you want to know how to effectively use django 1.8, for the django developers it teaches the best practices to follow in django to make your code and project structure better. It explains about django's templates, tests, views, models and making rest api's using django rest framework. Therefore it covers almost every aspects of developing application using django, a must read book for the django developers

Lots of useful information in this book. It's important to know that this is not a Django guide or reference; it's a collection of best practices. It really helps when you're not sure if you're doing something the right way, but if you're looking for a book to learn Django from the ground up, this is not it.

What a cracker of a book. These two python evangelists are outstanding. The best technical book I have read. This is a book about principles and the section on testing was really useful. I think I should show my team. I have 1.6 currently, but will get 1.8.

I don't program in Django, but read this book for entertainment and to get a glimpse of Django world. Really enjoyed it. It provides great overview of modern web development landscape with a focus on single technology stack.

Уау! Книга по проге, которую можно читать, как настоящую книгу, а не как выжимку из доков! Тем не менее Django перестал представлять для меня интерес, так что уже к середине мне стало скучно. Но дело не в тебе, а во мне.

Awesome best practices guide for contemporary django. Still good for learning django 1.9, and a great reference book to keep around.
