FastAPI Full Stack Web Development in 2024
What you'll learn
- Learn to develop an API as well as webapp using FastAPI with best practices and unit testing.
- Basic understanding of Python
- Example : Classes, List, Dictionaries.
- Basic understanding of Clean code and Testing philosophy will help you understand and refractor code.
This course is a guide to learn FastAPI. The FastAPI documentation is one of the best documentation. This course is for students who love videos as a medium to learn. We will be learning FastAPI with best practices. The Test-Driven Development goat ? will guide our development process. TDD is the way to think of the code before we actually write a piece of code. In this course we will be learning the following core concepts:
Creating APIs : We will implement the below endpoints:
User Authentication with basic security
Password will be hashed to provide additional security
We will use JSON Web Tokens to authenticate
Tokens won't be stored in LocalStorage or Cookies
Token will be stored in HttpOnly cookie
Version Control System
We will use GIT as our Version Control
Github will be used to host our code
Creating web apps
We will use Jinja Templating Language
We will be working with several forms
Tests will be written in Pytest
After each testing cycle, the Test database will be cleaned
How not to write unit tests?
Permissions: A user who has not created the blog, won't be able to delete it.
We will work with Postgres and monitor it using PgAdmin.
Fastapi provides us with built-in OpenAPI docs, we will use the documentation to the fullest. The docs help backend and frontend developers collaborate easily with each other.
Who this course is for:
- Beginners who want to build a real world webapp from scratch.
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.
Now, I am trying to dig deeper into raw backend development, databases, linux and networking with a new friend in the town, FastAPI. I really do believe that learning things the hard way helps understand software from the core. So, I include test-driven development, basics, and best practices even if it makes my course harder to follow.
