    Comments about oreilly Rapid Flask:

    This video is a great introduction to Flask and packs a lot of information into 42 minutes. You have a simple web app up and running within a few minutes and add more functionality over the course of the video. At the end, the author recommends some useful plugins to further extend functionality. Obviously, you won't have a production-ready app in 42 minutes, but as an introduction and overview this video is excellent.
