Flask is a small and easy-to-use, yet fully featured open source web framework written in Python. It is considered a micro-framework, but don't let the "micro" part fool you; Flask can do everything the others can do, many times in a simpler, leaner way. Flask's code is concise and well written; you can easily read and understand it. In this webcast, we'll provide an overview of Flask, full of examples that you can download and try. The topics to be discussed are:

  • Installation
  • Anatomy of a Flask application
  • Templates
  • Web forms
  • Database
  • Project structure for large applications
