I’ve seen a few opinions on this:
If you’re new to web development though, you might want to consider just using the folder structure
manage.py give you (as Ben suggests). That will let you learn how to write a web app, and you can move the files around later as you need.
I think the folder structure and other best practices are covered by Lincoln Loop’s Django Best Practices document.
They even have a project on github to auto generate the layout in their recommended structure.
I think it is very similar and in line with the Pinax recommendations; but you might want to verify this part.
