I'm really excited to (finally) announce that we are writing a book! We've been working with Django professionally for a long time (over 7 years now). During that time, we've learned a lot about how to use the framework to build fast and scalable websites. We're bundling up all that knowledge into an e-book called High Performance Django and it is up on Kickstarter today.

We're already well into the writing process, so we can tell you a little about what you'll get. The book is heavy on Django tips, but also reaches far beyond Python, showing you how to architect and tune the rest of your stack. It gives you an opinionated battle-tested blueprint utilizing many of the same techniques as high-profile Django sites like Disqus, Instagram, and Pintrest.

We hope to get the first edition out in July, but we need your help to make that happen. Writing and editing the book is going to be a massive undertaking and you can help support our effort. Give us your vote of confidence by backing the project today!
