Discounts, discounts, read all about them!

Here are some Django-related deals for this year’s Black Friday (25th Nov) and Cyber Monday (28th Nov), including my own. For more deals on general Python-related products, see Trey Hunner’s post.

My books

My two books, Boost Your Django DX and Speed Up Your Django Tests, have 50% off their base prices.

The deal stacks with the regional discount that offers a 50% discount for those living outside the GDP top 50. If you live in such a country, email me to get a total of 75% off the base prices.

This discount is available until the end of Cyber Monday, “Anywhere on Earth” (AoE). That is, it’s live as long as it’s still Cyber Monday or before, in one time zone, anywhere on earth.

Bonus: Django Itself

Okay, there’s no discount here, but there is a good deal! You can fund the framework that you love to ensure it continues into the future.

You can sponsor Django on:

If you’re working with Django professionally, please consider sponsoring a few dollars a month. But better yet, get your organization to sponsor to pay back for all the advantages that Django offers you.
