How To Build A Status Page For Uptime And Incidents.

Django and VueJS course


Over the past few years, I have been building Django and VueJS websites for a living. At this point, I want to share my knowledge with you to help you build the next big thing or just help you get better at developing with Django :). I am currently working on a big course where I will take you from nothing to creating an advanced uptime and incident status page system. If you have been developing for a bit, you have probably seen them. If not, you can see examples of them here: Digital Ocean and PostMark. We will be building something that looks a lot like them, using technologies like Redis and websockets. Including a custom dashboard for employees to update, collaborate and track issues!

In a nutshell, you will learn:

  • How to connect Django 2.0 and VueJS together (yet, keep them separate)
  • How to use Django Rest Framework to create a REST API
  • How to use continously track uptime using Redis and Celery
  • How to push updates to visitors without refreshing the page using websockets and Django Channels
  • How to use signals to send email notifications to users
  • How to create custom user accounts
  • How to implement authentication with VueJS
  • How to use components in VueJS
  • How to test your Django and VueJS application
  • How to deploy the app using Dokku on a VPS (for a small audience)
  • How to sustain a lot of visitors with limited infrastructure resources using caching
  • How to deploy the app using Flynn on multiple VPSs (for a large audience - including high availability)

Full source code will be made available as well. This course will probably be be available in both video and text. 
Note: since this course is not yet launched, the content might change depending on demand. I am always open for suggestions. Feel free to send me a message at
