Anvil: Building Full Stack Web Apps With Nothing But Python

Needs a location

Hello all,

Welcome to London Code Skill Buddy another workshop!

We're organising another session on "Anvil: Building Full Stack Web Apps With Nothing But Python" speaker Eli Holderness.

Manning Publications are giving 35% discount code (for their all products in all formats): mtpcodebuddy21

Speaker: Eli Holderness, Developer Advocate, Anvil
Organizer : Raj Forhad, Organiser London Code Skill Buddy & Principal Consultant

Title: Anvil: Building Full Stack Web Apps With Nothing But Python
Description:

  • Building web apps is a complicated mess. You need to know Python, JS, HTML, CSS, SQL, Flask, Bootstrap, SQLAlchemy, Webpack...the list goes on. What if you could do it all in Python?
  • That's what we built -- an open-source framework with Python in the browser, Python on the server - even a Python UI toolkit. And then we built an online IDE, drag'n'drop designer and hosting platform for it.
  • In this talk, I'm going to introduce Anvil, then take a deep dive into how it works. How do you run Python in the browser? How do you build an autocompleter that knows about everything from your UI layout to your database schema? And what does it mean for a programming tool to be "accessible"?

REMOTE Access:
Zoom meeting details will be provided on the day of the event to the registered attendees only.
