This intermediate Python Flask tutorial prepares learners to code web applications using Flask, a Python-based micro web framework, giving you the ability to quickly swap features and components in and out as you need them.
Flask was literally started as an April Fool's joke, but in the last few years, it's gone from a modest bulletin board system to one of the world's most popular frameworks for building complex web applications. Maybe you've heard of Pinterest or LinkedIn? Both were built on the Flask framework.
This Python Flask course will orient you on the history of Python frameworks, the history of problems they're trying to solve, and what Flask does right. You'll learn how to install and work with Flask, plus how to build apps in it. This course covers all the theory and practical knowledge you need to start using Flask for your own projects.
After completing this Python training you'll know how to code web applications using Flask, a Python-based micro web framework, giving you the ability to quickly swap features and components in and out as you need them.
For anyone who manages IT training, this Python training can be used to onboard new software developers, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Python reference resource.
