I have the concept of an EdTech startup and I am keen to succeed in it. I am a Biomedical and Mechanical engineer with no prior full-stack web development experience. I built this blog ‘A Numb Mind‘ using WordPress. So, I have little experience with PHP server-side programming as WordPress uses PHP for its content management system (CMS). However, I am well-versed in Python programming. So, here I am writing down my journey for the startup.
I have already brainstormed enough on the business idea and I am up for my coding journey. Let’s see how it goes.
Which framework should I use?
Although PHP is widely used, I find that it has so many complex naming conventions. But Python is perhaps one of the simplest programming languages out there. Moreover, Python has several built-in libraries if I need to incorporate features involving Natural Language Processing (NLP). So, let’s go with Python.
Following a Tutor or Online Course
I am following Full Stack Web Development with Flask course module on LinkedIn Learning.
I am super motivated now. I installed Brackets.io for my IDE. Let’s download Node.js and Postman.
Day 2 (19 May 2020)
Basic site building using Flask framework. A sample database creation, followed by the basic UI/UX designs.
