One of the steps toward professional deployment of your Python GUI apps is the way you deploy and maintain them. This video from PyCon in Pittsburgh goes into depth about the how and why containers can help lift your Python GUI app’s perceived professionalism and reliability.
Due to the global pandemic, the conference was done digitally. Now, you may be able to access all the talks, hands-on tutorials, and workshops from PyCon’s official YouTube channel. Interestingly, in this video, the queen Pythonista Casey Faist will provide us an online workshop that will help us understand everything about Heroku. Here, we will learn how this cloud platform can help us run our Python project or application.
According to the video, Heroku is a cloud PaaS (Platform as a Service) that allows users to develop, run, and manage applications in a less complicated manner. The workshop will demonstrate how to properly deploy your Django application on Heroku and what are the factors you need to consider. The video will also highlight the advantages of running 12 Factor Django apps on Heroku as well as some useful debugging tips that you can apply to have your project up and running smoothly on Heroku. We will also get a quick glimpse of the Heroku Dashboard and a brief guide on how to navigate the platform. If you want to learn more about Heroku, feel free to watch this video below.
