How to Work / Study Remotely

From UVA Online Learning:

  1. Get organized. Identify what you need to get done, how you will get it done, where you will do it, who will support you and when you need to get it done. Make sure you have all the materials you need for class and utilize your UVA Box account to store backups of your work.
  2. Stick to a schedule. Mark your calendar and stick to a schedule - when will you study, when are assignments due, when will you be in class, etc…
  3. Ask for help when you need it. Solve technical issues right away and reach out to your instructor if you need help or clarification on a topic.
  4. Find support in and outside of class. Network with your classmates and your peers to find people you respect that support your success in class.
  5. Leverage the resources that are available to you. Below are links to resources available to support you such as the library, advising, and the writing center.

Avoiding the macOS / psycopg2 error

Use this code at the bottom of your ‘settings.py’ file to try/catch the import of django-heroku so it only has to work when deployed to heroku and not locally:

# Activate Django-Heroku.
try:
    # Configure Django App for Heroku.
    import django_heroku
    django_heroku.settings(locals())
except ImportError:
    found = False
