Exactly What You Need to Get Up-To-Speed with FastAPI

Who Has Time for a 20 Hour Course?

No one busy. In this course, I promise to compress all the key principles, tactics and approaches I've learned from using FastAPI to get you up-to-speed with this web development

No Fluff

Check out the curriculum below to see what is covered:

  • All lectures have matching source code
  • All techniques are tried and tested in production
  • All carefully curated into a 4-hour bundle (note, not all lectures are complete yet)
  • Plenty of extra reading/material for those who wish to go deep down the rabbit hole.

Included in this course are weekly office hours where you can ask me any FastAPI (or general software development) questions for no extra charge
