Eve: Building RESTful APIs with MongoDB and Flask
Source code and course GitHub repositorygithub.com/talkpython/eve-building-restful-mongodb-backed-apis-course
What's this course about and how is it different?
This course will teach you to effortlessly build RESTful services based on Flask and MongoDB.
We dive deep into every aspect of the Eve REST framework. After a quick introduction to MongoDB and Flask, we'll dig into Eve, build our schemas and endpoints and start serving HTTP clients right away, and that's just the beginning.
In this course, you will:
- Create a new Eve web service application
- Define data schemas for the service and MongoDB
- Issue queries from the client straight into the service
- Validate inbound data (including custom rules)
- Add and configure paging for large data sets
- Project responses for just the data you need
- Switch between JSON and XML per client request
- Secure your service with authentication
- Add event hooks such as pre-insert actions
- Limit the rate of your clients to avoid abuse
- Deploy your service
- And lots more

Who is this course for?
It's for anyone who has wants to leverage Eve to build RESTful APIs. We do assume you know basic Python concepts but advanced features and knowledge of MongoDB, Flask, and REST is not required.
Concepts taught in live examples
Code is taught best when it's hands-on and real.
In this course you will see the entire application clearly built in front of your eyes. You will be confident that you too can create apps that fully leverage Eve.
Who am I? Why should you take my course?
My name is Nicola, nice to meet you. ;) I'm excited that you’re taking my class.
I am a Microsoft MVP, a MongoDB Master, a speaker at local and international conferences, and a teacher. More relevant, however, is that I am the author and maintainer of the Eve REST framework along with several other Python and C# open source projects.
I live in Ravenna, Italy, where I run a software company that makes accounting apps for small businesses.
In my spare time, I also run the local CoderDojo, a coding club for kids, and DevRomagna, the leading developer community in my area.
I have been leading the Eve project and its eco-system for five years now. As you can imagine, I am quite involved with it and am looking forward to sharing my knowledge with you.
Free office hours keep you from getting stuck
One of the challenges of self-paced online learning is getting stuck. It can be hard to get the help you need to get unstuck.
That's why at Talk Python Training, we offer live, online office hours. You drop in and join a group of fellow students to chat about your course progress and see solutions via screen sharing.
Just visit your account page to see the upcoming office hour schedule. Note: You must be enrolled in at least one course.
Is this course based on Python 3 or Python 2?
This course is based upon Python 3. With Python 2 going unsupported in 2020, we believe that it would be ill-advised to teach or learn Python 2.
The time to act is now
Master Eve and gain all its superpowers. Build you RESTful API on Flask and MongoDB.
