Build scalable web and mobile backend on Google App Engine: Python demo

About this event

We start the season with a demo/workshop on How to deploy a Python/Django App on Google App Engine.
In this meetup we will start from scratch to create a simple Django project, deploy it to Google App Engine and go live!
I will share some tips on how to log and monitor your application.
If time permits, we will break the monolithic app into micro-services.

You DONT need to be an expert on Python/Django.
But to follow the workshop you do need to be familiar with installing packages.

I will be using a Ubuntu OS (16.04) for demo.
So Ubuntu (Linux) and Mac users will find it easier to follow.
Windows OS users need to get familiar with installing Python packages (preferably using pip in Python virtual environments), system paths, etc on Windows.

My system info:
Python[masked]
Django 1.8
appcfg.py tool
To download appcfg.py look for "Download and install the original App Engine SDK for Python" at the bottom of this link for Windows/Linux/Mac.
