Modern APIs with FastAPI and Python Transcripts
Chapter: Welcome to the course
Lecture: Student prerequisites
0:00 What do you need to know to take this course? Well,
0:02 simply put basic Python. So we're assuming that you know how to write core Python.
0:07 You can create functions, you can work with strings.
0:10 We do talk about the advanced modern Python language features and how to put those
0:15 into web applications. So we don't necessarily need you to know those,
0:18 but you should have some familiarity with Python itself because we don't start from absolute the
0:22 beginning and some basic understanding of HTTP.
0:26 How HTTP works, how to exchange HTML, what
0:30 HTTP verbs and so on. We do touch on that as well,
0:33 but again, we don't go super deep into it.
0:35 We just sort of talk about the aspects.
0:37 So these are the two expectations that we assume. Maybe you can get away with less with
0:43 a little extra research, but hopefully you know a little bit of Python at a minimum to take this course.
