How can packaging Django projects make deployments easier, faster and more reliable?
Deployments of Django projects can be a challenging task. Beside the Python source code itself you usually have to handle a lot of other stuff:
* Installing Python dependencies
* Compiling SCSS to CSS
* Collecting static files
* Building documentation
* Compiling translations

* Operating system packages
Some of these concepts will hopefully help you to make your deployment process easier, faster and more reliable.
