Software engineer Kate Heddleston gave a tech talk at Hackbright Academy about building full-stack Python web applications – where you manage every part of the application yourself.
Kate covered setting up a local development environment to setting up a production server with web application code. She also talks about how to deploy from your local environment to production with Heroku.
Kate talks about the reality of programming (and reading documentation), testing, and why libraries will make your life easier.
