8 The most gratifying aspect of working on Django is the community. We've been
9 especially lucky that Django has attracted such a smart, motivated, and friendly
10 bunch. A segment of that community followed us over to the online "beta" release
11 of this book. Their reviews and comments were indispensable; this book wouldn't
12 have been possible without all that wonderful peer review. Almost a thousand
13 people left comments that helped us improve the clarity, quality, and flow of
14 the final book; we'd like to thank each and every one of them.
16 We're especially grateful to those who took the time to review the book in depth
17 and left dozens (sometimes hundreds) of comments apiece: Marty Alchin, Max
18 Battcher, Oliver Beat- tie, Rod Begbie, Paul Bissex, Matt Boersma, Robbin
19 Bonthond, Peter Bowyer, Nesta Campbell, Jon Colverson, Jeff Croft, Chris Dary,
20 Alex Dong, Matt Drew, Robert Dzikowski, Nick Efford, Ludvig Ericson, Eric
21 Floehr, Brad Fults, David Grant, Simon Greenhill, Robert Haveman, Kent Johnson,

31 Many thanks to our technical editor, Jeremy Dunck. Without Jeremy this book
32 would be littered with errors, inaccuracies, and broken code. We feel very lucky
33 that someone as talented as Jeremy found the time to help us out.
35 Specials thanks go to Simon Willison for writing the chapter on form processing.
36 We really appreciate the help, and we're thrilled that Simon's excellent writing
37 can be part of this book.
39 We're grateful for all the hard work the folks at Apress put into this book.
40 They've been amazingly supportive and patient; this book wouldn't have come
41 together without a lot of work on their part. We're especially happy that Apress
42 supported and even encouraged the free release of this book online; it's
43 wonderful seeing a publisher so embracing the spirit of open source.
45 Finally, of course, thanks to our friends, families, and coworkers who've
46 graciously tolerated our mental absence while we finished this work.
