0:00 Well, we've finally come to the part where we're going to play a little bit around with Python. We've talked at the high level about why it's cool
0:07 we've talked about how it's efficient the types of things you can build. Let's just take a couple of minutes and actually
0:12 build out something non-trivial. We're going to build this website. Looks pretty good, right? Guitary, it will rock your socks off.
0:19 So here's a simple little Flask website. And the idea is, we're a guitar company. We're selling guitars. Go here and, click that button
0:27 and say, browse our guitars and you'll get a list you know, like a book store, or like any store that you would expect online these days.
0:34 Click that button, you get something like this. Here's all the guitars, there's a cool picture there's the title, there's the price.
0:40 In a real app you'd be able to click on it and get all sorts of details and order it. In our app we just have these two screens
0:45 you can click those buttons, see all the guitars just the electric guitars, or the acoustic guitars. So this is what we're going to build.
0:53 We're going to only take a super simple look at it we're not going to build every single detail from scratch. For example, the web design
1:00 we're just going to drop that in there. But it's going to work with our Flask app that we're going to put together.
1:06 Now this is the first time we're writing some code in this course, and I did say, I totally understand that many of you may not be software developers.
1:15 Let me just set some expectations. When you see what's happening here in this next couple of videos, don't expect to follow along
1:22 every single step if you're not familiar with Python. Don't expect to be able to recreate it. It's not to teach you how to use Flask
1:29 or the Python web framework; it's to give you a little bit of concrete sense of what it's like for someone, possibly you
1:36 possibly someone else, to use these Python web frameworks. So we're going to skip around a bit. We're not going to cover every single detail.
1:43 It's more to inspire you with what is possible than it is to teach you every single nitty gritty detail. Okay? Here we go, It's going to be awesome.
