Lecture: Setup your Heroku account and install the Heroku CLI

Login or purchase this course to watch this video and the rest of the course contents.
0:00 Naturally to get started you need to have a Heroku account. If you have not done this yet please head over to www.heroku.com
0:13 and click this very pretty sign up for free button if you can catch it. Or this little sign-up button here on the right and simply go through
0:22 and enter your details. You can sign up for a free account where you don't have to pay. Heroku does offer whole free-tier you can
0:31 read through that in this page here and go through the documentation I will leave that for you to do. When you are ready finished signing up
0:41 get your account setup and login. Now, once you've logged in, you'll be greeted with a screen like this one, welcome to Heroku.
0:50 Now that your account has been setup here's how to get started. What I don't want you to do is create a new app. We're going to
0:58 actually do that using the Heroku CLI from operating system. If you wanted to really, you can start creating
1:07 your own app here with the create new app button but that's not how we going to do it in this video.
1:14 You can feel free at this point to explore the interface. You can head over to the Python documentation down the bottom there and that will open up
1:22 the Dev Center and tell you what you need to get started with Python. It does say Python version 3.7 installed locally and that's because Heroku
1:32 has updated its back-end with Python 3.7. So preferably try and run that on your system. See the installation guide for your OS on the right here
1:44 and how to get that going. You don't really need to have Postgres installed for what we're doing, so we'll just leave that for now.
1:52 What I'd like you to do is head over to another help page so devcenter.heroku.com/articles/herokucli. That'll be on the screen right now
2:05 and go through the download and install section here. If you click that, you will then be able to choose for your operating system, macOS, Windows
2:16 and Ubuntu down below. I have Windows obviously. I'm going to go through the 64-bit installer which I already have.
2:25 I'm hoping you know how to install software on your platform of choice. Please just follow the instructions on Heroku.
2:33 They are actually very straightforward. Go ahead, install the CLI and move on to the next video.
