Rapid Web Prototyping with Lightweight Tools

Rapid Web Prototyping with Lightweight Tools

Tutorial presentation given at PyCon US 2013.

Meant for Python programmers who don't typically do web / front-end programming, this provides a whirlwind introduction to Twitter Bootstrap, rapid HTML + CSS + JavaScript iteration with static clickables, and the conversion of static UIs into working web applications with Flask, Jinja2, and MongoDB. At the end, also discusses how to deploy your web application to a real server that you own (e.g. EC2 or Rackspace) using fabric, nginx, uwsgi, and supervisor.
