0:02 Here is a quick section to let you know that it's OK to skip around. We didn't build this course for you to take it in a straight line,
0:09 part one, part two, part three and so on, we built it to maximize the efficiency of you building and launching your online business.
0:18 If that means there is sections you already know, and you want to skip over them, that's fine.
0:23 If there is something that's extra important and you want to start there, you want to skip right to that,
0:27 like for example integrating credit cards into your system or error monitoring or deployment, it's fine,
0:34 our goal is to maximize your productivity, to minimize the time that it takes for you to get started.
0:39 So, maybe one path through the course starts like this: you watch this introduction, including this video here,
0:44 you already know Python, so maybe skip that, you don't know Pyramid, so make sure to do the Pyramid parts
0:49 but you have web design and CSS and Bootstrap, you know those things, skip that, but maybe come back,
0:54 learn some SQLAlchemy, jump over the credit card section, and so on. That's how the course was built, we want these pieces to be somewhat independent,
1:03 even though the application builds up over time, and we want to encourage you to get the most out of it
1:07 and not sit through an hour of something that you already totally know, like for example CSS, if you know CSS.
1:14 We are also going to be giving you additional resources so if you go through a section and you are like
1:18 "oh I really wish we went deeper into something" - both, the Talk Python To Me podcast and Matt's Full Stack Python
1:24 have incredible amounts of additional resources, for example, when we talk about Pyramid or SQLAlchemy,
1:31 we spend about an hour with each of the founders interviewing them about their project where it came from,
1:37 where it's going, so we'll make it to those areas, maybe I'll point you at those interviews for example. And Matt has a whole book on deployment
1:44 and a ton on web servers and the DevOps side of things, so he's got a ton of how-to articles and links that he'll be sharing throughout this course.
1:52 So, on one hand, skip around, jump over things you don't need, and if we don't go deep enough, we'll try to give you extra resources that you can find,
2:01 mostly from our resources that we build ourselves, but also additional third party ones, if that makes sense.
