Better resources for Django?

Posted 20 February 2012 - 08:29 PM

I got Django properly installed and have it showing the "It Worked!" page, but then it kind of loses me. It goes into what i feel is a really advanced program. Is there other reading material for Django? Possibly a good tutorial or book that doesn't just overwhelm ones beginner noobness?

What part of the tutorial did you find confusing?

The problem with a plain "Intro to Django" tutorial is that it necessarily requires passing knowledge of Python, relational ratabases, the anatomy of an HTTP request, and MVC theory.

I would recommend the book "The Definite Guide to Django" by Apress, that certainly got me started with it. You can read it online for FREE! I do agree with you, the tutorial was a little fast for me too initially.
