When I first started learning Android, I found a fantastic series of YouTube videos by Marakana that stepped through building a Twitter clone. It walked me through all the steps and thus explained to me the basics, common libraries, best practices, resources, etc. Looking over an expert's shoulder while building a practical app was the absolute best learning method for me. More than anything else, it provided me with a skeleton I could build on. From there I could continue researching and know which questions to ask.
I'm now looking for something similar with Django. Of course I checked out the official tutorial, and The Django Book. The former flexes some Django muscles, but doesn't walk through a full app. The latter is certainly better, but the app it builds is very basic and by the time it reaches the more advanced subjects the tutorial breaks down and its back to short code snippets and documentation-like explanations.
Checking out Amazon isn't terribly encouraging. The latest general Django book was released almost two-and-half years ago and only covers v1.0. To be fair, I understand that this is probably because the online documentation is excellent, but again, I'm looking for a walk-through. I did experience a spark of excitement when I came across Practical Django Projects, which sounds like exactly what I was looking for. However, some of the reviews make claims of some egregious problems--no source code, many errors and no errata, totally apathetic author and unresponsive publisher, etc.
And so I'm left at square one and need your advice. Is there a place where I can sit on a giant's shoulder and be walked through a realistic Django project from start to finish? Preferably using a more recent version of the framework.
