Hopefully, in my latest quest, I won’t end up like these guys…

So I’ve completed the Flask Blog app in Chapter 7  of Real Python part 2.   This simple little beginner app has all the basic functions of a web site: login, entering data, logging out.  I’ve learned a ton so far…not the least of which includes finally getting a grasp of Git and virtualenv and even a decent (though far from perfect) understanding of Python decorators.  At the same time, I see I have a long way to go in my latest quest.

I don’t have a lifestyle in which I can regularly devote long hours of concentration to my web development learning, so I’m taking a different approach than in my previous Python adventures. I’m taking notes as I go through Real Python, to help me remember what I learned, and also remember where I left off.  I’m going to make sure I have a thorough grasp of each chapter’s material before I move on to the next.  I’ll do this by making notes of concepts I need to learn more about, and set goals to work on to do so.   I’ve found Evernote to be helpful in this regard, along with regular updates to my README. Stay tuned…
