Python Jumpstart by Building 10 Apps Transcripts
Chapter: App 5: Real-time weather client
Lecture: This chapter has been refreshed
0:00 If this is the first time you're taking this course, you could basically disregard the next two screens here.
0:05 But if you've already taken this course and gone through this chapter, you should know that we've completely redone it.
0:11 We've re-created it from scratch. Why? Well, we use this awesome place "wunderground.com"
0:17 and we would go there and we'd get the weather from "wunderground.com". However, it's been a couple of years,
0:22 and Wunderground has dramatically changed their website. So the presentation that we were giving was not really something you could re-create.
0:30 So, what have we done? Well, I've built a new weather service, and I'm hosting it over at Talk Python. So, "weather.talkpython.fm"
0:40 we're going to use this weather API to get real live weather data for
0:45 our application, Okay? So if you've seen this course before and you've already gone
0:49 through it and you're wondering "hey, why did all these videos change?" this is why. It's just to refresh and keeping things modern.
0:55 If you want to get back to the old code, go to the GitHub repository for the course handouts,
1:00 the course demos, and just switch branches to "Old Weather APP chapter" and you'll see that
1:04 code. Otherwise, you're also going to see the latest code on the GitHub repository. With that out of the way,
1:10 let's go build our awesome weather app against our brand new shiny weather API.
