Basic demo application showcasing Django + Prometheus + Kubernetes. For more reading about the why and how of custom metrics with Django, you can check out the post custom application metrics with Django, Prometheus, and Kubernetes.

You can perform some actions at these locations, then verify that metrics are set properly by either:
- Visiting the Prometheus server at http://localhost:9090
- Using the

docker-compose up -d
