FastAPI has become a buzzword in the DevOps world. People are starting to use it and sooner or later it will become the new industry standard. If you want to learn how to build a data science API with this tool, this webinar is for you.

Our Data Scientist, Andrea Giussani, will briefly introduce what a FastAPI is, its pros and cons, and build a simple API with some toy data. At the end of this webinar, you will be able to independently build and run a Python-based API with FastAPI.

In order to be able to follow this webinar, an intermediate knowledge of Python is strongly recommended along with a basic exposure to APIs.
