Caktus Group's Technical Director, Mark Lavin, publishes Lightweight Django with O'Reilly Media, the leading provider of technical books. The book helps developers create custom web applications using Django, an open source framework powered by Python.

Caktus Group, the nation’s largest Django web application firm, announced the publication of Lightweight Django by Technical Director Mark Lavin for O’Reilly Media. The book, co-written with Julia Elman, a Caktus alumnae, was an O’Reilly bestseller in this summer’s early release edition. Lightweight Django helps experienced developers break complex Django projects into smaller, simpler components.

The authors pulled from their experience working on Django applications for Caktus clients and their own personal explorations of Django. Topics covered include building the world’s smallest Django project, stateless web applications, static site generators, building a REST API, client-side Django with Backbone.js, single-page web applications, Websockets, and Tornado.

Lightweight Django is available now at book sellers everywhere, Amazon, and O’Reilly Media.
