One of Flask’s strengths is that it allows you to … Read more
I want to load data via Database Actions in my Oracle Autonomous Database, but first I need to clean up some Dates and Times. Python is my language of choice, and I’ve heard about Regular Expressions, but I’m scared…
I needed an approach that would make me question my life decisions. Something that would force me to rethink what it meant to be human.

I’ve also spent time becoming more familiar with virtual environments (as they pertain to python + flask), jinja, and WTForms (I’m sure I’m forgetting other … Read more
