Completely updated for Django 4.0!
Django for Professionals takes your web development skills to the next level, teaching you how to build production-ready websites with Python and Django.
Once you have learned the basics of Django there is a massive gap between building simple "toy apps" and what it takes to build a "production-ready" web application suitable for deployment to thousands or even millions of users.
In the book you'll learn how to:
- Build a Bookstore website from scratch
- Use Docker and PostgreSQL locally to mimic production settings
- Implement advanced user registration with email
- Customize permissions to control user access
- Write comprehensive tests
- Adopt advanced security and performance improvements
- Add search and file/image uploads
- Deploy with confidence
If you want to take advantage of all that Django has to offer, Django for Professionals is a comprehensive best practices guide to building and deploying modern websites.
"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
"When readers interested in web development ask me what to read next after Python Crash Course, I refer them to Will's books: Django for Beginners, Django for APIs, and Django for Professionals. I highly recommend you check out his work."-ERIC MATTHES, author of Python Crash Course
