We all know that Django makes building web apps with python really easy, but few realize that Amazon Web Services makes deploying scalable fault tolerant applications just as easy! This class will focus on taking a provided Django web application and deploying it to AWS through a series of hands on exercises using many of the AWS services and some very easy to use open source Django applications.
In this class we will start with a demo Django app that they will use for the rest of the exercises. Before getting started there will be a brief intro to Boto, a python project that makes working with AWS a joy.
