About the author: 

Ron DuPlain is a core contributor to the Flask project, and has built dozens of production applications with Flask. He has been applying Python to a variety of applications from embedded systems to web development. He is based in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA, where he runs the local Python meetup group and is an organizer of the local bar camp unconferences. He holds a BSc in Computer Engineering from the University of Cincinnati and a Master's in Systems Engineering from the University of Virginia. 

Flask is a lightweight web application framework written in Python and based on the Werkzeug WSGI toolkit and Jinja2 template engine. 

Instant Flask Web Development shows readers how to build a small deployable scheduling application with pointers to the various design decisions one can make when developing with Flask. With this book, the reader can set up their development environment and learn how Flask handles web requests. The book then goes on to show how to build a functional data-driven web application that is ready to be published, by adding one layer at a time. The book will help build the layers of a simple application: URL routes with Flask, a database with SQLAlchemy, form validation with WTForms, user authentication and sessions, page layout with Twitter Bootstrap, and browser code with jQuery. 

The book is for developers who are new to web programming, or are familiar with web programming but new to Flask. This book provides a head start to those who have some beginner experience with Python and HTML, or are willing to learn.
