Beginnings of Flask, Conda, Pip

This week I am mostly getting to grips with Flask, initially using this tutorial.

This is a gentle introduction to using a virtual Python environment using Conda at work and pip at home and getting to grips with my initial IDE of choice, PyCharm.

I installed a bunch of packages, realised I had installed them globally – not just to my new virtual environment for my Flask tutorial – uninstalled globally, reinstalled locally and now back on track.

I haven’t done any of the wirings from Flask into the DB but, initially at least, so many of the concepts are very familiar from recent learnings with Angular – model, view, controllers, factories, routing, etc.

Simple stuff but all good reusable learnings which are relatively new to this particular dinosaur.
