A while ago a colleague pointed me to the Django speed handbook. This performance guide for Django has advice for different layers of a typical Django application: the database, the network and the front-end. It looks like a collection of good advice for Django developers to speed up their web sites.
My project, Django compression middleware, is recommended for the compression of responses from the server. It was nice to see my project referred to as “the excellent django-compression-middleware library”. Thank you to Shibel K. Mansour!
