A hands-on tutorial showing you how to deploy your Django web applications on Heroku's cloud platform
Note: this session will run alongside the conference sprints. It’s free to all conference attendees.
About the workshop
Deploying a Django application to a production environment can be one of the most daunting parts of the development process.
Heroku makes it easy and encourages best practices in app design at the same time.
Anybody unfamiliar with 12-factor app design or wanting an easy way to deploy their applications should get a lot out of this workshop, and will cover everything you need to know to run web applications on Heroku.
We’ll use a pre-made application for the class, but afterwards you should be ready to move on to write and run your own apps!
Attendees should already have a basic knowledge of Python and a familiarity with command-line tools, but no experience with web applications or Heroku is expected.
