About This Course

Welcome to our FastAPI course, perfect for those who enjoy learning through doing. This course is not organized in a conventional way; instead, it adopts the Test-Driven Development (TDD) principle, which means we think through the code before writing it - a valuable skill on its own.

Throughout this course, you'll understand how to create and manipulate APIs, focusing on specific operations like Create, Retrieve, Update, and Delete. Learning these concepts equips you with the necessary skills to program interactive web apps. Key aspects of this phase include working with ListView and DetailView for blogs, managing user authentication, ensuring secure password management, and implementing JSON Web Tokens for user authentication. A crucial aspect of practicing secure coding includes storing tokens safely, and in our case, in HttpOnly cookies.Familiarity with the Jinja Templating Language and understanding form management will be part of your learning journey as well.

We underline the importance of Unit Testing - with a focus on Pytest - ensuring your code is always secure and reliable. We also review how to avoid common mistakes when writing unit tests, boosting the overall performance of your code.

For those curious about Permissions, we will tackle key concepts such as: how to prevent a user who hasn't created a blog from deleting it. We also explore database management, working primarily with PostgreSQL and using PgAdmin for monitoring.

Lastly, you'll learn how to exploit FastAPI's powerful OpenAPI documentation, which aids smooth collaboration between frontend and backend developers. Remember, knowing what you're building and why it's useful is an essential part of becoming a competent developer.

I am a software developer. I have a special interest in databases. I started with Django, DRF. At some point, I felt that using batteries included frameworks, steals a lot of learning opportunities....View profile
