Course Overview
Hey everyone, my name is Reindert-Jan Ekker, and welcome to my course, Getting Started with Flask. I'm a longtime developer and educator, and in this course, I will teach you about creating web applications with Flask. This is a framework that will allow you to become productive and create your first working website in almost no time at all and with almost no code at all. In this course, we're going to create a small but complete web application, and by doing so, we'll cover all of the basic building blocks of a Flask web application. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include creating Flask view functions and mapping them to URLs, using Jinja templates to create HTML pages, creating web forms, and handling user input from those forms. By the end of this course, you'll know all major features of Flask, and you'll be ready to begin writing code for a Flask web application. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Python on the basics of HTML. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn web development with Python and Flask with the Getting Started with Flask course, at Pluralsight.
