Special Python Study Group-Flask Workshop!!!

Sean Murphy is a Senior Scientist at Johns Hopkins University, a data scientist that consults and advises several startups, and a co-founder of Data Community DC (, a large group of data practitioners around the nation's capital). He uses Python for way too many tasks and has built just enough Django and Flask apps to be dangerous.

This class will be a introduction to Flask, and will help you get a better understanding of a simple but very useful web framework and get a page up and running in the workshop. 
Have Flask downloaded and installed BEFORE you arrive:

If you have any troubles with installation, there will be Pythonistas to help you from 6.30-7 PM.


This is for the study group for learning python. We meet and work on python lessons together, answering each other's questions. 

Katya, a postdoc at Columbia University, leads this study group on Tuesday and Thursdays each week. The study group is co-hosted by Columbia University's Women in Science group:

If you have any questions/suggestions, please direct them to Katya (listed to the right under attending) or [masked] with subject "NYC PYLADIES STUDY GROUP"

    For those running Macs with the Anaconda distribution of Python, try:

    conda update pip

    at the terminal and then try to go through the install procedures listed in the tutorial. If that does not work, I would probably try doing the tutorial inside a Linux virtual machine using virtual box and considering removing Anaconda. Virtualbox is free to download ( and there are many instructions to get a virtual machine up and running. Once you have the linux virtual machine booted, the tutorial should be much more straightforward.

    Also, if you are using a windows machine, I would highly recommend the same strategy and use virtualbox to run a virtual linux machine to do the tutorial. If you can't go this route, I would at least recommend using Cygwin ( which offers a Linux like environment and terminal that should simplify the tutorial.

      I finally got it to work for me and when I was done was thinking wow that's it? It was easy and it makes a complete world of difference using a Linux environment. Thank you once again.
