#100DaysOfCode in Python Transcripts
Chapter: Days 76-78: Getting Started with Python Flask
Lecture: Your 3 day overview
0:00 This is the ReadMe for the course, for the Python Flask introduction. This is going to guide you through the next 3 days,
0:09 so obviously we have the videos coming, but there are some little things you should know before you get cracking, so looking at these days here,
0:19 the first thing you're actually going to do is set up your environment and then create your first Flask app, okay? It's quite simple.
0:28 You'll probably complete these very quickly, but there are a few concepts that you should know, so just follow along with the videos
0:35 and then play around with your Flask app. What I'd like you to do on the first day is start thinking about potential CLI scripts,
0:44 maybe apps that you've already written for the command line, and then see how you can Flaskify them, turn them into Flask apps.
0:53 Just have a think about that one. For the second day, what I'd like you to do is go through the videos, and you're going to be working
1:01 through dictionary data, how to pass that data from your Flask app into your Jinja template. This is very, very critical, so it's a good day
1:11 to dedicate just to that, alright? And play around with that, see what else you can do with it.
1:19 If you want to dive into the more advanced functionality, you can, with databases and whatnot. But really, that is your Day 3, so freestyle, go nuts.
1:30 The CLI app that you would've thought about on day one, actually try applying Flask to it. Try that on Day 3 and maybe throw in the database thing
1:41 that you probably played around with on Day 2. So see what other cool advanced techniques you can discover and learn with Flask,
1:49 and see what you can implement on existing apps. That's your Day 3. And with that, just pop on over to the next video.
