Chances are, you were introduced to my blog through the Flask Mega-Tutorial, which is by far, the most popular topic on this blog. If you are doing the tutorial now, I'm sure you noticed that a number of things aren't quite as easy anymore. This is unfortunate, but several of the areas the tutorial touches on have seen significant changes since I published the articles.
The tutorial is now five years old, and embarking on a rewrite to bring it to Python 3.6 and current versions of all other technologies is going to require a considerable amount of time and effort. So I have decided to try a little experiment with a Kickstarter. If you haven't seen this yet, have a look at this video:
If you have benefited from my blog articles and would like to help me allocate a chunk of time this summer/fall season to dedicate to bring the Mega-Tutorial all the way to 2017 technology, I would really appreciate it if you contribute what you can to this campaign on Kickstarter. Obviously this being a Kickstarter, there are some rewards for those who decide to become backers:
- I will compile all the articles into a nicely formatted ebook that you can read on your Kindle or other ebook reader.
- I will record videos in which you can see me going through every single tutorial chapter, while I describe the steps and you watch my screen.
There isn't a lot more to say here that is not said on the Kickstarter project page, so please visit it to learn more about this project, and also spread the word by telling your friends about it!
