Are you new to Python and looking to build
something cool and call yours? Are you wondering what it takes to build a real production ready API? Do you have questions on how to serve your latest idea via an API? Are you wanting to do it in under 45 minutes? If so, this talk is for you! Join David Asaf as he walks through building a production ready Python Flask API from start to finish. Your new API will not be your basic “Hello World” API, but one that has full authenticated routes, user roles, swagger documentation, and a database connection. After this talk, you’ll be ready to start up your next project in no time.

Speaker Bio:

David Asaf is currently a senior machine learning front end engineer on the advanced analytics team at American Tire Distributors (ATD) in Huntersville, NC. His first programming love was JavaScript, but has quickly found a spark with Python. He is passionate about web development, cloud solutions architecting, woodworking, and theology sprinkled with a bit of ancient & koine Greek.
