Content: Welcome to Django for Professionals, a guide to building professional websites with the Django web framework 1.
There is a massive gulf between building simple “toy apps” that can be created and deployed quickly and what it takes to build a “production-ready” web application suitable for deployment to thousands or even millions of users. This book will show you to how to bridge that gap.
When you first install Django and create a new project the default settings are geared towards fast local development. And this makes sense: there’s no need to add all the additional features required of a large website until you know you need them.
These defaults include SQLite as the default database, a local web server, local static asset hosting, built-in User model, and DEBUG mode turned on.
