"In order to demonstrate Django's rapid development potential, we will begin by constructing a simple, but fully-featured, e-commerce store. The goal is to be up and running with a product catalog and products for sale, including a simple payment processing interface, in about half-an-hour. If this seems ambitious, remember that Django offers a lot of built-in shortcuts for the most common web-related development tasks. We will be taking full advantage of these and there will be side discussions of their general use.

"In addition to building our starter storefront, this article aims to demonstrate some other Django tools and techniques. In this article by Jesse Legg, we will:

* Create our Django Product model to take advantage of the automatic admin tool
* Build a flexible but easy to use categorization system, to better organize our catalog of products
* Utilize Django's generic view framework to expose a quick set of views on our catalog data
* Finally, create a simple template for selling products through the Google Checkout API"
