Two Scoops of Django 1.6 at DjangoCon Europe
Posted by Daniel Greenfeld on March 04, 2014.
Are you attending DjangoCon Europe? We have good news for you: DjangoCon Europe attendees can get a copy of Two Scoops of Django: Best Practices for Django 1.6 at the conference (pre-order required).
How to Order Your Copy
To order a copy for pickup at DjangoCon Europe, get it here: http://www.weezevent.com/djangocon-europe
Note that you must pre-order it via that page, and that sales will close on May 1, 2014, 2 weeks before DjangoCon Europe. This is to give us an exact count of how many books to ship to DjangoCon Europe. Unfortunately, we can't sign or individualize these copies as they'll be sent directly from the drop shipper.
The 1.6 edition is a thick book that is packed with tons of updated material. Feedback from those who already owned the 1.5 edition has been overwhelmingly positive. We honestly tried our hardest to provide a useful resource, and we hope it is greatly helpful to readers.
Help a Speaker Attend
Proceeds from sales of the book will be used to subsidize the expenses of a speaker on a low budget. As anyone who’s been a speaker at a conference knows, putting together a great talk is not easy. It can be especially hard for speakers on a tight budget to make the commitment to give a talk.
By buying a book, you are helping a speaker and making a small but meaningful contribution to DjangoCon Europe 2014. (And if you’d like to help further, you can make a contribution to help an attendee on a low budget here.)
Why You Should Attend DjangoCon Europe
Great talks. Knowledge that will shape your career as a designer or developer who works with Django. Opportunities to get to know open source developers whom you admire. Sprints where you can contribute to Django or Django-related open source projects. Experiences that you’ll never forget. More fun than you could possibly imagine.
Although it looks like we probably won’t be able to make it to DjangoCon Europe 2014, we attended DjangoCon Europe 2012 in Zurich and DjangoCon Europe 2013 in Warsaw. We have very happy memories of both conferences. We will be there this year in spirit, at least.
We are proud to be sponsoring DjangoCon Europe 2014. We will be sending some Two Scoops goodies to DjangoCon Europe -- you’ll find out what they are at the conference.
