There are some tutorials on deploying Django to AWS Elastic Beanstalk out there, but they are confusing, use python2, too in-depth, or outdated. I've decided to make a simplified tutorial for people deploying to Elastic Beanstalk with Django for the first time. I remember my first Django deploy to AWS EB, and it was NOT fun.
What are we going to be doing in this tutorial?
We're going to deploy a Django server (the best kind, semi-biased...) to Amazon Web Services Elastic Beanstalk, using python 3 and also have static files and a PostgreSQL database. Pretty cool right? Well that's not all, there's also a surprise at the end of the article, but you can't look until you finish everything else! I promise it will be worth it.
