The Temple of Django Database Performance

I wrote The Temple of Django Database Performance to help you level up your Django skills.

This book is a blueprint for becoming a senior Django developer who can jump into any Django project, profile slow pages and APIs, and tune the underlying database queries.

And this is not just another boring technical tome: it’s a mashup of deep technical content and fantasy table-top gaming, filled with full-color maps, characters, and creatures.

You can read more about the book at Spellbook Press. You can also buy a full-color print copy on
