Today I read a post on HN called Want to learn Rails? Start Here and it seemed like a great idea so I decided to do the same for Django.

This is my collection of web resources for folks who are just getting started with Django. The list contains what I believe is the absolute essential for the total n00b.

The official Django tutorial – Writing your first Django app

Getting started with Django on Heroku – The easiest way to deploy your projects and free hosting

The Django Book – It’s a bit outdated but still a great place to get started

Django Best Practices – Here you can learn some really good tips on how to organize your projects

170+ Django conference videos – Everything and anything, great resource
