Building data-driven web apps with Flask and SQLAlchemy Transcripts
Lecture: Following along
0:00 Think back when you were younger.
0:01 Much younger and you had cool stuff like these Legos.
0:04 And it was so fun to have all the Legos
0:06 all the little parts and cool things you could put together.
0:09 Wasn't it more fun to build something?
0:11 This course is just the same. You can have all the code
0:13 and you can poke around with it and play with it.
0:15 I'm going to teach you a bunch of little stuff.
0:17 But it is much better to build
0:19 something awesome along the way.
0:22 We've set up this course for you to follow along.
0:24 The way you do that is
0:25 each chapter, maybe not the very first one
0:27 but all the meaningful chapters
0:29 that have code that we write
0:30 will have a beginning and ending version of the code.
0:34 So let's just take chapter five for example
0:36 not sure what that topic's going to be yet
0:37 how it's going to fall out
0:39 but whatever we did in chapter five
0:40 there's going to be something called starter
0:42 and that's going to be the code
0:44 that we started from in chapter five.
0:46 Probably that was the finished version of chapter 4
0:48 but not always.
0:49 So there's going to be something we start with
0:51 and then there's going to be final code.
0:53 So anytime you want to follow along
0:54 you go take the copy of whatever chapter you're at
0:57 and you want to go from there
0:59 grab that code and you can write the new code
1:01 that we're working on.
1:02 Or just, you know, check out what we built in the end.
1:05 Of course, if you want to take it to another level
1:06 go and try to create a project
1:09 that's similar but not the same
1:10 and follow along over there.
1:12 But in case you were trying to follow along
1:14 with the app we're building, which is a good idea
1:16 and you get lost, just grab the starter code
1:18 from any particular chapter
1:20 where you kind of want to resume from.
1:22 All right, that's it.
1:23 You should be all set up and ready to take this course.
