Project Description

Heroku is a cloud service provider and is among the first-ever cloud platforms developed. It facilitates the fast and effective building, deploying, and scaling of web applications.

Heroku supports many programming languages, which tallows developers to focus on their code, instead of on the infrastructure of the application. It provides several add-ons, including alerts and notifications, data stores, metrics and analytics, network services, and security.

In this project, we’ll deploy an open-source Django web application to Heroku, using Heroku CLI. The web application will use the PostgreSQL database. We will also deploy the local database to Heroku, using the Heroku Postgres add-on.
