Description

Learn how develop a single page web application written with modular components on the frontend and python on the backend.

Abstract

Learn how develop a single page web application written in ES6 using react-redux on the frontend and a python Flask app as a web service on the backend. Organize and develop your frontend code as modules. Add functionality to your application by choosing from thousands of JavaScript packages on https://www.npmjs.com/. Add dynamic functionality with your python code as a service that the frontend can talk to. Get fast feedback with hot module reloading to quickly see your changes take effect without reloading the whole app.
