|I am in the process of learning Python for web development and I think I am the stage where I should start learning a web framework(did not use one before in another language). My html and css is ok.|
I have picked Python for fast web development and that is why I think I should just dive right into Django. However I have seen plenty of advice that it would be good to start with Flask(or other smaller framework) to learn better the inner workings of the framework.
What would you advise?
As I learn better from videos do you know of any good videos to learn the advised framework? What about books or tutorials?
What do you wish you knew or learn when you were just starting with the framework?
Thanks everyone for your comments. So I will be starting with Django and so far I have as resources Django docs and the upcoming video series. Is there anything else you would recommend as tutorials?
Asuming I am a fast learner and I learn this full time how long should it take before I can start building my own web apps?
