The Temple of Django Database Performance Is on Sale Now

A year ago, I set out to write the book on Django database performance.

Not just another boring technical book: this would be something special, a mashup of deep technical content and fantasy table-top gaming.

After 11 months of grueling nights and early mornings, including half a year of sleep torture as a new parent, I finally finished The Temple of Django Database Performance this November.

One reader described it like this:

The Temple of Django Database Performance is a must read for anyone working with Django. You’ll learn about profiling, query plans, indexing, and the Django ORM. Very approachable for those with only modest experience but even the experts should learn something new.

– Tristan Waddington, Developer Experience Lead

You can grab the ebook bundle (EPUB, MOBI, and PDF) or print bundle (full-color print edition plus all ebook files) from the Spellbook Press web site, or print-only from
