Deploy a Django Application Using AWS Fargate

Learn how to deploy an e-learning course catalog website that has been developed using Django, over the AWS cloud with the help of AWS Fargate. We'll use different AWS commands on the CLI, as well as multiple AWS EC2 resources like VPC, subnets, security groups, and more to run a custom AWS instance.

Project Description

We’ll deploy a custom Django application to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud in this project. The application is an e-learning course catalog website. We’ll configure and create the necessary resources to deploy this application over Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS). AWS Fargate makes it easy for us to deploy and run our applications inside a container without having to manage servers, scale our clusters and optimize cluster packing.

Each course on our custom website will have a title, an image, an author name, a status indicating whether it is paid or free, a description, and a “Visit Website” button. The website will also allow users to search for the available courses with a search bar.
