Turn a Python script into a Web Application
You write Python code. You visit websites. You think to yourself "Making my code into a website sounds hard", so you've never made your code into a website.
That's because right now, you're about to spend about an hour to turn a simple Python function into a website anyone can visit. That website runs your function (with arguments chosen by the visitor) and shows the result, computed in real-time, to that visitor. This is your first step to "The Social Network"-level fame. You rejoice*.
