Greetings Pythonistas*
I hope everyone had a good summer.  The last couple of meetings has been a review of using Flask for creating a simple web site using Python.  Continuing on with this theme, we'll start looking at the tools available in Flask for using a database as the back-end for a blog site.

At the July meeting, we reviewed database concepts with a fast, small and full-featured database engine called SQLite - and it's free to use.

Resources for the Absolute Beginner 
For those just joining the group or anyone wanting to get starting with learning Python, here are some great resources:
  • Python for Beginners - a 44 part series of 3 to 4 minute videos produced by MSDN Channel 9
  • More Python for Beginners - a YouTube playlist containing a continuation of the series on Channel 9
  • Even More Python for Beginners - once you've gotten the basics, this series dives into Data Science tools like Jupyter Notebooks, Anaconda and pandas
  • Code Examples - a GitHub repository with all of the code from these three video series. All available free to download and use.

The Python Users Group Roanoke meets on the third Monday of each month.

Hope to see you at the next meeting!
Darrell L.
