A Django book is on the way

As we announced at PyCon today, lead Django devs Jacob and Adrian are working on a Django book! We've been working on it for the past couple of months and already have (the first drafts of) a couple of chapters done at this point.

Apress is the publisher. We're excited to be in the fine company of Dive Into Python and the Joel on Software book. Both are fantastic reads, by the way.

One particularly cool thing about the book project is that we're open-sourcing it. Not only will the book be made available under an open-source license digitally, we're also aiming to get people involved in drafts of the book as it's being worked on.

Can't announce definitive dates yet, but we'll keep you posted on this site.
