It is time for us to take our Python and Django skills to building a full application.  This is part one in a two-part series of tutorials where we build an application from scratch.  This series will walk through all the steps required to build your own solution.

A Python/Django Site Monitor

The application we build is a web solution for monitoring web sites and API end points.  We can configure the application to simply do a heartbeat check or validate the content returned.  This first part of the series focuses on the database, design, and front end pieces of the application.  The “guts” of doing the checks and scheduling them is covered in part two.  The bulk of our tutorial covers the Django steps, but there is plenty of Python to learn as well.

The Mentor-Mastermind Group

This series comes from our mentoring/mastermind classes.  These classes are virtual meetings that focus on how to improve our technical skills and build our businesses.  The goals of each member vary.  However, this diversity makes for great discussions and a ton of educational value every time we meet.  We hope you enjoy viewing this series as much as we enjoy creating it.  As always, this may not be all new to you, but we hope it helps you be a better developer.  Drop us a line to find out when the next one is so you can join our group.
