Chapter: Days 65-68: Heroku and Python Platform-as-a-Service
Lecture: Setup your Heroku account and install the Heroku CLI
0:00 Naturally to get started
0:02 you need to have a Heroku account.
0:05 If you have not done this yet
0:08 please head over to www.heroku.com
0:12 and click this very pretty sign up for free button
0:15 if you can catch it.
0:17 Or this little sign-up button here
0:18 on the right and simply go through
0:21 and enter your details.
0:23 You can sign up for a free account
0:25 where you don't have to pay.
0:27 Heroku does offer whole free-tier you can
0:30 read through that in this page here
0:33 and go through the documentation
0:35 I will leave that for you to do.
0:38 When you are ready finished signing up
0:40 get your account setup and login.
0:43 Now, once you've logged in, you'll be greeted with
0:46 a screen like this one, welcome to Heroku.
0:49 Now that your account has been setup
0:51 here's how to get started.
0:53 What I don't want you to do is
0:56 create a new app. We're going to
0:57 actually do that using the
0:59 Heroku CLI from operating system.
1:03 If you wanted to really, you can start creating
1:06 your own app here with the create new app button
1:08 but that's not how we going to do it in this video.
1:13 You can feel free at this point to explore the interface.
1:16 You can head over to the Python documentation
1:19 down the bottom there and that will open up
1:21 the Dev Center and tell you what you need
1:24 to get started with Python.
1:26 It does say Python version 3.7 installed locally
1:30 and that's because Heroku
1:31 has updated its back-end with Python 3.7.
1:34 So preferably try and run that on your system.
1:39 See the installation guide for your OS on the right here
1:43 and how to get that going.
1:45 You don't really need to have Postgres installed
1:48 for what we're doing, so we'll just leave that for now.
1:51 What I'd like you to do is head over to another help page
1:56 so devcenter.heroku.com/articles/herokucli.
2:02 That'll be on the screen right now
2:04 and go through the download and install section here.
2:09 If you click that, you will then be able to choose
2:11 for your operating system, macOS, Windows
2:15 and Ubuntu down below. I have Windows obviously.
2:20 I'm going to go through the 64-bit installer
2:22 which I already have.
2:24 I'm hoping you know how to install software
2:28 on your platform of choice.
2:30 Please just follow the instructions on Heroku.
2:32 They are actually very straightforward.
2:34 Go ahead, install the CLI
2:35 and move on to the next video.
