Flask is a small and lightweight Python web framework that provides useful tools and features that make creating web applications in Python easier. It gives developers flexibility and is a more accessible framework for new developers since you can build a web application quickly using only a single Python file. Flask is also extensible and doesn’t force a particular directory structure or require complicated boilerplate code before getting started.

PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system . PostgreSQL allows to create databases and store data . It also allows you to interact with the data inside the database.

In this course we will create a web based application using Python and Flask and we will create and store objects inside a PostgreSQL  database that will interact with our web application’s front end. We will also deploy the web application to the internet via heroku

Expected Outcomes

  1. Build a web application with a database backend
  2. Deploy web application to the internet via heroku
  3. Create database and table with PostgreSQL
  4. Setup Flask development environment
  5. Create endpoints for a web application
  6. Render Templates
  7. Use conditional statements
  8. Use for loop to iterate over a list
  9. Create routes for web app
