I have a few specific Django questions that I asked on stackoverflow.com, however, I wouldn’t always get the answer.
Is there any platform (upwork, codementor, toptal etc) recommended where I can consult Django experts on specific questions? Most platforms are more for posting jobs, is it the same if I am looking for consultation?
The Django Community | Django page identifies the recommended places for requesting help - this forum being one of them. (There’s a mailing list and IRC channel as well.)
If you’re looking for more consistent / paid support, there are individuals and companies that provide that as well. To find some, you could post here, or twitter (#Django); or look at the sponsors of the Django Software Foundation and DjangoCon / PyCon.
