Welcome to our course: Create and Deploy a Django app to Serverless Google App Engine!
This is a concise, project-based course that will teach you how to deploy Django to Google App Engine.
Serverless technology is a new concept which is quickly gaining ground.
The benefits of Serverless is that there are no servers for you to manage, which saves a huge amount of time when setting up and maintaining projects.
This means developers can spend more time building bespoke functionality for their application and less time managing infrastructure.
In this course you’ll learn how to deploy Django to one of the most popular Serverless technologies available: Google App Engine. You’ll also learn how to use a suite of Google Cloud technologies such as Datastore and Secret Manager.
During the course you’ll be creating a URL Shortener with Django, using Docker as a development environment and Datastore as a database.
We’ll be following all the best practices such as:
Creating a development environment using Docker
Writing unit tests with Test Driven Development (TDD)
Setting up a local Datastore emulator
Using Secret Manager to protect sensitive config values
Managing static files
This is an advanced level course that assumes previous experience with Django and Docker.
Ready to deploy Django to Google App Engine, and learn all the essential components to get your project up and running in no time? Let’s go!
Who this course is for:
- Mid-advanced Python developers looking to learn how to deploy to Google App Engine
- Developers who have a Django app they wish to deploy to Google App Engine
- Anyone looking to learn how to use serverless technology
Hey, I’m Mark! I’m an award-winning full-stack software engineer with a passion for learning and teaching new technologies.
This passion started at 12-years-old when I taught myself how to make Windows batch scripts. Little did I know that hacking around on my computer back then would turn into a life-long passion for programming.
I went on to complete a degree in Computer Systems Networking at Nottingham Trent University, and worked in various developer roles at multinational corporations and startups.
I always believed that the final step to learning is teaching. And so I started a software development blog and consultancy firm called London App Developer. My work has been featured in the Daily Mail, Mashable, TechCrunch, the Huffington Post, the Mirror and Gizmodo, and over 30,000 developers read my programming tutorials every month.
My goal for teaching on Udemy is to help developers make a better living through their code. Whether that’s by building new systems and tools to make the world a better place, or just to make their lives easier. If I can help them to increase their earning power, so they can better support their communities and loved ones, then even better. :)
I live in London, England with my wife and business partner, Brooke.
Hi! I'm Brooke. I'm a digital marketing professional with an expertise in social media, branding and content strategy. I'm also one half of a London-based software consultancy firm (and blog) called London App Developer. We make training guides and courses for the developer community. :)
After earning a MA in Communication from the University of Ottawa, I moved to London, England to start a career in journalism, PR and social media. After a short time in this city, I moved into education and technology, and the two have been a passion of mine ever since.
I've worked for struggling start-ups and billion-dollar companies. My experience has been diverse. But each role and project has given me a unique perspective on how to connect and develop long-term, meaningful relationships with customers to drive sales and growth for brands and business.
Though not a developer by trade - I am in business/married to one! My role on Udemy right now is to help support the delivery of our first course called BUILD YOUR BACKEND USING PYTHON & DJANGO REST FRAMEWORK. We hope you enjoy it.
