Building data-driven web apps with Flask and SQLAlchemy Transcripts
Chapter: Welcome to the course
Lecture: Student expectations and pre-reqs
0:01 This is not an introduction to Python course
0:03 we do assume a little bit of working knowledge.
0:05 We assume that you have basic Python programming skills.
0:09 I would say if you're what you might consider
0:11 an advanced beginner
0:12 you're totally good to take this course.
0:15 We're going to use things like classes and decorators
0:17 and functions and so on
0:19 and we're not going to describe what a class is
0:21 or what a function is or things like that.
0:24 So, you'll need to have that as prerequisite knowledge.
0:27 Make sure that you have some basic working knowledge
0:29 of Python in order to take this course.
0:31 If you don't, consider taking my Python Jumpstart
0:34 by Building Ten Apps course
0:36 that's all about learning Python.
0:37 So here we assume that you know Python
0:39 we also assume that you know a little bit of HTML.
0:43 That if you can look at HTML
0:44 at least make sense of it
0:45 you know what say, an attribute is
0:48 what a CSS class is, things like that, that would be good.
0:51 We're not going to be doing too much
0:53 advanced stuff with HTML
0:54 in fact, I'm not rally sure there is
0:56 such a thing as advanced HTML
0:58 but we're not going to be doing too much with it.
1:01 But of course since this is a web class
1:03 we're going to be doing a lot with HTML
1:05 and we do assume that you have
1:07 working knowledge of standard markup.
1:10 Finally, we're going to be using CSS
1:12 and I'll talk a lot about what the selectors
1:14 and classes and design mean
1:16 especially when we get to the Bootstrap section
1:18 in applying that to our website.
1:20 So we're not going to assume that you know tons of CSS
1:23 but we're also not starting from scratch there either.
1:25 Basically, HTML, CSS and Python knowledge
1:29 that's what we assume you're starting with
1:31 and then we're going to build
1:32 our Full Stack web app from there.
