About the talk:

Flask is a microframework for building Python web applications. Inspired by an April Fools joke, it has grown into a useful tool for quickly building Python web applications. In this talk, we'll talk about the basics of building a Flask app, including testing, templates, sessions, third-party applications, JSON APIs, and more. There will be some comparing and contrasting with Django, with a focus on helping Django users understand the choices Flask has made.
