A Web App in Four Frameworks

In this talk we take a tour of some Python web frameworks through the lens of an API for the same web application: a simple To Do list. We'll see how the same problems are handled across Django, Flask, Pyramid, and Tornado, and why you might choose one over the rest.

About Nicholas Hunt-Walker

I moved to Seattle in 2010 to study for a Ph.D. in astrophysics at the University of Washington. After 5.5 years, I decided to move out of the field and into tech to teach programming and software development at Code Fellows, a Seattle-area coding school. Since that move, I've been able to have a hand in training over 100 new Python developers and 80+ other developers that have gone on to work in the fields of mobile app development, application security, and DevOps. I've also been able to work on a variety of projects, including an application to inform people of the consequences of their criminal convictions, a Facebook messenger bot that connects people to volunteer opportunities in their area, and a Slack bot that helps you play Dungeons and Dragons. I'm fiercely interested in good mentorship both as a mentee and a mentor of others, and am always looking for ways to grow personally and professionally.
