0:01 This is not an introduction to Python course we do assume a little bit of working knowledge. We assume that you have basic Python programming skills.
0:10 I would say if you're what you might consider an advanced beginner you're totally good to take this course.
0:16 We're going to use things like classes and decorators and functions and so on and we're not going to describe what a class is
0:22 or what a function is or things like that. So, you'll need to have that as prerequisite knowledge. Make sure that you have some basic working knowledge
0:30 of Python in order to take this course. If you don't, consider taking my Python Jumpstart by Building Ten Apps course that's all about learning Python.
0:38 So here we assume that you know Python we also assume that you know a little bit of HTML. That if you can look at HTML at least make sense of it
0:46 you know what say, an attribute is what a CSS class is, things like that, that would be good. We're not going to be doing too much
0:54 advanced stuff with HTML in fact, I'm not rally sure there is such a thing as advanced HTML but we're not going to be doing too much with it.
1:02 But of course since this is a web class we're going to be doing a lot with HTML and we do assume that you have working knowledge of standard markup.
1:11 Finally, we're going to be using CSS and I'll talk a lot about what the selectors and classes and design mean
1:17 especially when we get to the Bootstrap section in applying that to our website. So we're not going to assume that you know tons of CSS
1:24 but we're also not starting from scratch there either. Basically, HTML, CSS and Python knowledge that's what we assume you're starting with
1:32 and then we're going to build our Full Stack web app from there.
