Progressing with Djangoby justin on March 19, 2011, 11:07 p.m. UTC
So I picked up a print copy of The Django Book (I find books easier to read all the way through than the same thing as a pdf or html) and read the whole thing over a couple of days. Most of the basics I had of course learned when I switched this website over to Django, but I did learn some tricks for more advanced stuff.
With my new knowledge I've been working on a couple of Django projects at work. We've got an existing application with 120 or so tables in the db and a terrible, nearly useless management UI. I started working on a Django front end to that using the inspectdb feature to generate models for me to tweak. That is coming along very nicely and is working much better than I had expected. I'm also working on a couple of smaller apps from scratch
