From Zero to Flask: The Professional Way
Develop back end web apps
This course will teach you, assuming no prior coding knowledge, how to develop back end web applications the way professional coders do in the top internet ups. How do I know this? Because I’ve been leading tech teams in both large enterprise as well as up companies in New York City for the past 15 years.

I have seen a lot of courses and free tutorials and I can tell you 90% of them just teach bad habits while promising to turn you into a real “web developer”. But let me tell you a reality: There’s no such thing as a web developer these days. You’re either a back end web applications developer, a front end application developer or the so-called (and rare) full stack web developer which includes the other two. However there are so many technologies to master in both the backend and frontend areas that full-stacks (or “web developers”) are a rarity in professional environments — You’re either a back end or a front end web developer.

This course doesn’t promise to turn you into a professional back end developer after you complete it…but it will give you a good foundation from where to and continue your training, knowing the right path to become a real professional backend web applications developer using Python. My goal is to make a second course, which would introduce more advanced back end concepts and then the front end courses (basic and advanced) soon after that.

The course goes through a step by step process of developing web applications, teaching you the Python basics for web development, introducing Flask and using Cloud9 as your development environment. It then moves to explore SQL databases, using MySQL and finally showing you how to develop a blogging application using all these learnings.

Best of all, you don’t need to install anything as we will use a revolutionary online web development environment that essentially gives you your own Linux web server with database capabilities! All you need to have is a browser and internet connection and it’s completely free to you.

At the end of the course students will be challenged with a final project where all the course material will need to be used to complete it. Students that finish the final project will be eligible for special future promotions.

Finally, you will learn how to run your application using Docker Containers, one of the hottest new technologies that allow developers to write their applications and deploy easily to a number of cloud hosting platforms and scale them indefinitely.
