Basic Websites with Python Flask / Introduction to Programming

Electron Workshop has kindly offered to host again, so this time we'll be building websites with Python Flask. If you couldn't make it to the last workshop, or if you worry you might not have the programming know-how for websites then you can come along and go through our Introduction to Programming workshop instead.

Websites with Python Flask

Ever wanted to learn how websites work or wanted to build one yourself? Or maybe you have played around with some HTML but wonder how to get it to actually do something? Now is the time to start with our Websites with Python Flask workshop. We’ll take you through creating a basic interactive website using Flask, a very popular choice for websites created using the Python programming language.

You will only need a laptop and a very basic understanding of Python (such as from our Introduction to Programming workshop). If you have previous experience with HTML, CSS and JavaScript then that is great too (but not required).

Introduction to Programming

For those of you who couldn't make it to our previous workshop, you can come along and do the Introduction to Programming with Python! This is the same workshop that we ran a few weeks ago, so all the details from here still apply.

Because the number of seats is limited, it is important that you only sign up if you definitely plan on coming (and do so, too!). If you can't make it for any reason, please cancel your attendance on Meetup right away so your someone on the waiting list can take your place. Thanks!

Interested in coaching? If you are already a programmer, or know a programmer that wants to help, get them to email [masked].

About Python Python is one of the most popular and widely available programming languages. With an easy syntax and friendly user base it's one of the best languages for a beginner programmer. After learning the basics, Python programmers can easily move onto graphics and multimedia, websites and data analysis. It's "batteries included" nature makes it easy to get your ideas into code, and it's a great stepping stone before moving on to other languages.

    March 27, 2013

    • Steven F.

      This is now :) Hop in! There is naturally a bit of churn leading up so you will probably get in.

    I got so excited about the workshop that I RSVPed right away and completely forgot about previous plans for the weekend. I'll be on the lookout for the next Intro session!

  • Trevor H.

    Note it is Easter Saturday??

    March 6, 2013

    • Steven F.

      Yes it is, and actually we didn't realise when booking it (who puts Easter in March?). I'll look at pushing it back a week.

  • claire

    Said yes but then have just realised that it is on easter weekend. Will be away for the long weekend so have to say no. Will it be repeated?

    March 7, 2013

    • Steven F.

      Yep it should get a rerun in future. The workshop material will be available online as well.
