5.0 out of 5 stars Concise Flask Book Delivers Lots Of Value, March 7, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Flask Web Development: Developing Web Applications with Python (Paperback)
Flask Web Development is a great book for learning Flask through examples. The explanations are clear and to the point.

The book starts by pointing out why Flask may be a good choice for you. Chapters progress in a logical fashion and I felt the explanations were at the right level. There are two parts to the book where the first part describes how to use Flask for ordinary tasks such as Jinja html templates, and the 2nd half of the book focuses on social applications of how you would turn your site into a social site.

I am using Flask for a project currently and I found the sections on Web Forms (Chapter 4) and Deployment (Chapter 17) to be especially useful to me. At first I thought the deployment section focused too much on Heroku. But I realized deploying to Heroku is much easier than other cloud providers if you already have a GitHub setup.

While the second part of the book (social apps) where not directly relevant to me, I got a good sense of how to use these techniques in the future. I also think this is the first book on Flask (by copyright), so I give a lot of credit for going into uncharted waters.
