by Ronny completed this course, spending 8 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
The course covers amongst others the 2 main python web frameworks Flask and Django. Flask as a lightweight framework, Django for a full-featured solution.

It is a great course on modern web development using python on the server side and javascript on the client, including git, CSS, HTML, animation, SVG, and bootstrap. Also, SQL, ORM, APIs, templating are covered. Everything is explained very well with little hands-on code examples.

The final weeks are somewhat more theoretical on topics like testing, CI/CD, travis, scalability, scaling databases, and caching.

I have followed a lot of tutorials but this one is a very complete introduction to web development. Also, i have tried a lot of frameworks but this course's choice, Django ooh! Just the best for beginning yet powerful for production!
