The latest Edition focuses on Two Scoops of Django is out. I recall buying the first edition which was based on 1.5. This book holds a special place in the Django community IMHO. This Edition is focused on Django 1.11 and Python 3, with an appendix for working with Python 2.7. Revised material on nearly every topic within the book. 20+ pages of new material on Django REST Framework, security, forms, models, and more. I look forward to doing a review of the book as soon as it launches in Dead Tree Format in my country ( India ) like the previous editions.
