An Introduction to Flask
First Steps in Web Development with Python
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: August 2014
Run time: 4 hours 8 minutes

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.

Miguel Grinberg has over 25 years of experience as a software engineer. In his current position at Rackspace he spends most of his time contributing to open source projects in the OpenStack ecosystem. He blogs at http://blog.miguelgrinberg.com about a variety of topics including web development, robotics, and photography.

      Comments about oreilly An Introduction to Flask:

      This gives a great introduction to Flask, starting gently but building up some really great features. Miguel manages to cover issues in enough depth to avoid the need to stop the video and go googling for answers to questions (usually all my questions were anticipated and answered in the run of the video). The examples are perfectly pitched and the jumping between live video addressing the camera and screen capture is balanced perfectly.
