You’ve built a shiny Django app and want to release it to the public, but you’re worried about time-intensive tasks that are part of your app’s workflow. You don’t want your users to have a negative experience navigating your app. You can integrate Celery to help with that.

Celery is a distributed task queue for UNIX systems. It allows you to offload work from your Python app. Once you integrate Celery into your app, you can send time-intensive tasks to Celery’s task queue. That way, your web app can continue to respond quickly to users while Celery completes expensive operations asynchronously in the background.

In this video course, you’ll learn how to:

  • Recognize effective use cases for Celery
  • Differentiate between Celery beat and Celery workers
  • Integrate Celery and Redis in a Django project
  • Set up asynchronous tasks that run independently of your Django app
  • Refactor Django code to run a task with Celery instead
