How to connect your flask application to AWS RDS

In this video I go through:

  1. Creating an AWS RDS instance with PostgreSQL
  2. Modifying a flask app to connect to the RDS instance
  3. Setting up pgadmin so you can interact with the database server locally
  4. CI/CD pipeline with GitHub actions

All the code for the video is on GitHub as well, with the link in the video description.

This video is the latest in a longer series where I detail the steps necessary to take a local hello-world flask application from your local machine to AWS so you can access via a domain name. You can find the full playlist here:
