    Pro Django: Web Development Done Right
    The first book about Django was released is available for pre-order at amazon. The authors are Adrian Holovaty and Jacob Kaplan-Moss, both involved in the project. This book will definitively be my next buy.
    The first part of the book introduces Django fundamentals like installation and configuration. You’ll learn about creating the components that power a Django-driven web site. The second part delves into the more sophisticated features of Django, like outputting non-HTML content (such as RSS feeds and PDFs), plus caching and user management. The third part serves as a detailed reference to Django’s many configuration options and commands. The book even includes seven appendixes for looking up configurations options and commands. In all, this book provides the ultimate tutorial and reference to the popular Django framework.
