What comes next after Django and it's Django REST Framework? This talk shows how to build a simple REST API for a database from the ground up using FastAPI.
This talk will go through the current available options, explaining why I settled on FastAPI. It will then go through the process of building a simple REST API from the ground up, explaining the choices available and covering url mapping, databases and authentication/authorization.
To get the most out of it, you will already know some Python. Experience with REST APIs and databases will help, but isn't required.
