Chapter: Days 65-68: Heroku and Python Platform-as-a-Service
Lecture: Introduction: Heroku
0:00 Good day, this is Julian again
0:01 and welcome to Heroku deployment.
0:04 If you haven't heard of Heroku before
0:06 it is a cloud platform app pretty much
0:10 that allows you to host your web applications in the cloud
0:14 so you don't have to worry about hosting any servers
0:18 running your own hardware.
0:19 It's all hosted on the Heroku server end.
0:22 You just upload your code, configure app
0:25 and your application's running, your website's running.
0:28 So we're going to cover off in this set of four days
0:33 how to launch some of the fast apps
0:35 that we've already created in Heroku.
0:38 We're going to transfer the code from those apps
0:41 up to Heroku and we're then going to run it
0:43 in the Heroku cloud. It's actually not too complicated
0:47 so you're going to enjoy a couple of easy days here
0:50 which is great because the flask stuff was pretty heavy.
0:54 Watch the read me video
0:55 get an idea of what we're going to do
0:57 and let's get deploying.
