Two Scoops has established itself again as the standard guide for professional Django software development. It comprehensively covers the best practices across the entire framework and frequent stumbling blocks for more novice developers. Having said that, this book isn't designed to introduce a layperson to Django nor is it a comprehensive reference of the various components and architecture of the Django web framework. If you're looking to improve the quality of your django code, you'll need this book. If you're already an seasoned developer, this is a great refresher that will inspire you to cleanup and improve your projects.
It's well written in a whimsical tone that's very approachable and fun to read compared to most technical references. The book features ice cream themed references and examples to help demonstrate the practices. It reads very quickly, not dragging on any subject for more than a few pages. There's plenty of links to background or detail for those motivated to dive deeper. For a book focused on best practices, it goes to great lengths to provide perspective on the recommendations, offering alternatives and citing key contributors for justifications. Use these recommendations as a starting point for teams to define standards and practices while allowing some leeway to customize or tailor to specific preferences.
