I get asked a lot where to start if you’re looking to python for web backed work. A lot of people look at Django and Flask and feel that Flask is where they should start. It’s nice and small, very simple, and after all they’re not doing anything big and complicated, so why start with a big, complicated framework?
This reminds me if something that happens in the running world. People get started running then either a) read Born to Run, or b) hear someone talking about the benefits of so-called barefoot running.
