It is written for Internet developers who are sick and tired of dealing with complicated, bloated website frameworks that are a pain to build and a nightmare to maintain. Django CMS is an Open Source website building framework that is experiencing exponential growth because it is built on the simple, secure and scalable architecture of Django. This book takes you from knowing nothing about Django CMS, to building a functional website and content management system that you can deploy for your own website or for your customers.

  • Install and configure Django CMS
  • Build a dynamic website quickly and easily
  • Author and submit content for publication

  • Install and use custom and third-party plugins
  • Deploy a website using Django CMS

Who This Book is For:
