Reviews

"If you're looking for a guide into the world of Django, then the three-step of Django for Beginners, Django for APIs, and Django for Professionals is ideal: get up and running, get into APIs, which are a cornerstone of modern app development, and then add the bits you need to your fledging app into production, from databases and static files, to user accounts and security. It's a long road. Will's books are an awesome companion."-CARLTON GIBSON, Django Fellow and Django REST Framework core contributor
