Python-powered chat apps with Twilio and SendGrid Transcripts
Chapter: Welcome to the course
Lecture: Topics covered
0:00 So, what are we going to learn during this course?
0:03 We're going to cover a bunch of really interesting things,
0:05 but at a high level, we're going to see how we can use twilio twilio
0:09 studio workflows to build these really interactive conversations through chat and voice and other things like
0:17 that. And you saw that we're able to integrate both external API's
0:20 and API is that we can create and run in flask.
0:24 Speaking of API is that we create,
0:26 we're going to see how to create a piece that exchange JSON Data in Flask as
0:32 well as build an entire application that has a home page.
0:35 It has an admin back in and things like that.
0:38 So I'm going to dig into Flask and build some really cool stuff over there.
0:42 That Flask application is going to want to work with data in a persistent,
0:46 scalable, questionable way. So we're going to use Sequel alchemy,
0:49 one of the most popular arms for python seek welcome.
0:53 You'll take that data as a class and save it into the database,
0:56 and finally, we're going to send messages and emails back out of our Flask application
1:01 Using send grid, we saw there going to be beautiful emails.
1:04 Nice html formatted ones. But they also have pdf attachments that will generate within our
1:09 Flask application. So here's just a portion of what we're going to learn during this
1:13 class. I think you're really going to love it.
1:15 This is such a neat, comprehensive application for working with twilio and python.
