- [Bruce] There are a number of frameworks that allow you to build web applications and APIs in Python. One such framework is Flask, and it's a microframework. Flask gives you the underlying features you need to build web applications, but remains agnostic regarding your selections around infrastructure. It has a rich ecosystem of plugins designed to solve nearly any development challenge you care to throw at it. You can build things very rapidly with Flask on your own terms with no dictates from your stack. Hi, I'm Bruce Van Horn. I've been a professional software engineer for over 25 years, and I've built just about every kind of software from desktop, to web, to mobile apps. In this LinkedIn Learning course, we're going to build an API. We'll use Flask with Python to handle common tasks, like authentication, database access, object-relational mapping, and routing, and we'll see some great examples of plugins that make Flask a joy to work with. We'll also work on pragmatic strategies for testing your application and deploying it to a production cloud server. If you're looking to build an API quickly, you've come to the right place.
