About

Python is the language of choice for millions of developers worldwide, due to its gentle learning curve as well as its vast applications in day-to-day programming. It builds great web services in the RESTful architecture. This video will show you the best tools you can use to build your own web services. Learn how to develop RESTful APIs using the popular Python frameworks and all the necessary stacks with Python and Flask, combined with related libraries and tools. We will delve into the framework for building various web services. We will show you everything required to successfully develop RESTful APIs with the Flask framework, such as request handling, URL mapping, serialization, validation, authentication, authorization, versioning, databases, and asynchronous callbacks. At the end of the framework, we will add authentication and security to the RESTful APIs and prepare tests for them. By the end of the video, you will have a deep understanding of the stacks needed to build RESTful web services.
