Introduction Key Aspects of Web Development in Python

You already know how to use Python in general. This skill is valuable in and of itself and is necessary for every Python programmer.

Python is a general-purpose programming language. Programmers use it to do many different things, even specific tasks like writing scripts for automation. But Python does not end with these simple tasks. There are many more global fields where you can use Python, such as data science. And the bigger the domain, the more the programmer needs to know.

One of the most popular uses of Python is web development. Most web applications rely on the client-server model. In short, the client makes a request to the server, and the server prepares a response and sends it back to the client. We can divide these web applications into two parts:

  • The frontend is a part of the web application that runs on the client, meaning in the user browser
  • The backend is a part that runs on the server
