This is a fantastic guide for anyone who is not a developer and has an idea that they wish they could build. The format - “collection of things” - is incredibly flexible and gives you a fast and easy way to start “sketching” out your application without getting overwhelmed by a lot of technology.

After reading and working through this book, I had a functioning prototype of a fairly complex app within 3 weeks. It really does help in a concrete, practical way. And I love its optimism—the idea that you don’t have to spend years becoming a seasoned programmer to build an interactive web app that’s decent.

This is a fantastic introduction to the Django framework if you’re getting into it for the first time. It delicately balances introductory content and intermediary content in a way that doesn’t make you feel like you’re being talked down to or that the pacing is too slow.
