Get started with Flask, the popular web framework that’s small, lightweight, and powerful. This video tutorial uses use short and simple examples to help beginning Python developers explore the features of Flask and some of its extensions. You’ll learn topics central to most web applications—routing, templates, web forms, and user sessions—along with a brief introduction to databases and user logins.
Miguel Grinberg walks you through each exercise systematically, commenting on the code as he produces it on his screen. Once you complete a small working application, you’ll write unit tests for it and then learn about deployment.
If you’ve taken some Python classes and are anxious to get your feet wet with web development, this video is for you. It’s a perfect prequel to Grinberg’s book, Flask Web Development.
