Full Stack Quants

11th October 2016 in London at CodeNode

This SkillsCast was filmed at How to build a web app from scratch, with Python and JavaScript.

Interested in how JavaScript and finance work together? Join us for this months Full Stack Quants meetup! Robert Hardy will present a second live coding session in which we continue building a web application with Python and JavaScript.

Last time we wrapped up with an app that uses server-side rendering of data from a SQL database (using the Python Flask framework).

This time we will add a REST API which delivers that data directly to the frontend, and use this to modernize our app with client-side rendering.

You do not need substantial knowledge of Python or JavaScript, the technical level will be kept as simple as possible so you can wing it. The aim is to demonstrate how all the pieces of web architecture fit together.

For people that missed the first presentation on the 27th Sep (we were fully booked and in fact are allocated an even bigger space this time), we will go through the key points of that one again.

All the coding will be published live to GitHub, so you can follow on your own laptop if you wish, or revisit afterwards.

Notes for both sessions can be found here. The code for the first session is on GitHub.

Doors open at 19:15, to start at 19:30 and end at 21:00.

We will have a 15 min break in the middle of the session to grab a drink at Code Node's fully licenced SpaceBar and socialize/network.
