Selling groceries online using Postgres, Flask, Docker & Android

Startups are exciting. But choosing the right tech-stack can be a daunting task: You want to be able to move quickly right from the start, but also remain flexible as the technical requirements inevitably change.

In this talk I will describe my own experience of building out the tech stack for a mobile e-commerce startup. It will cover: • an overview of the main design challenges • the chosen architecture (database, server-side application layer, API and mobile client) • how I used Flask to build the API • how I used Flask-Admin to build a management console • deploying the backend application using docker-compose.
