Amazon's S3 service has been a hit with developers who need to store and serve large amounts of data in a scalable way. In this screencast we'll see how we can use S3 in a Django application.
We'll build a simple gallery app, but instead of storing the photos locally, we'll store them on S3 and then serve the photos directly from the S3 server. In the process, we'll learn the basics of using the boto library to interact with Amazon Web Services.
This screencast assumes you know the basics of Django. If you are new to Django, take a look at the Learn Django series on showmedo.
Are you learning Python? To keep the site running clean and ad-free we've started Club ShowMeDo. The club will allow you access to some special videos we're making to pass on programming skills we consider important to the development and enjoyment of Free Open Source Software (FOSS).
The focus at the moment is on developing with the Python programming language, one of the backbones of the FOSS movement with a huge number of included and third-party libraries.
We welcome feedback and we want to hear your ideas.
Showmedo's development is fairly rapid and bugs will inevitably creep in. If you have any problems please drop us a line using the contact address below. Likewise, any suggestions for improvements to the site are gratefully received.
