Put your child’s work on line with Web2py and Google Apps

A fantastic way to show off your child’s work is to load it up online.  There are plenty of Python web frameworks out there.  The one I use is Web2py – basically because the first time I went looking for a framework I was able to download it and get it up and running in under 5 minutes (in fact, probably less).

If you also sign up for an account with Google (at the time I think I could do it for free or for $25 or something) you can upload the framework with your app onto Google’s cloud servers.

Here is a very basic app I put up a long time ago, off the back of the silly sentences tutorial.  In fact, so long ago I’ve lost my login details :’-(

Hello world!

Welcome to Python4Dads (and other responsible adults).  The primary motivation of this blog is as a companion to Python4Kids, covering aspects which are either too difficult, or which I don’t want to go to as much trouble explaining.  Python4Dads is also intended to cover additional projects which are complementary to Python4Kids.  Finally, this blog will also be a dumping ground for notes to self on Python stuff.
