Write a Feed Reader in Python

I just started a new video tutorial series. This time it'll cover the entire process of writing an RSS feed reader in Python from start to finish using the feedparser module, flask, and SQLAlchemy. Expect to see about 3-4 new videos a week until this thing is finished!

Write a Web App in Go


I've recently started a small series of video tutorials with the first one being Write a Web App in Go. Each tutorial will have its own Github repo here where the commits will be in sync with the tutorials for anyone following along.

After this Go tutorial I'm thinking that I'll cover something involving Python3. Maybe a start-to-finish project using flask, tornado, django...? Or just an in-depth tour of a common library like requests, numpy, pandas, or pygame?

Any suggestions?
