build a non-trivial web application for books in the first semester
We need to execute the bottle framework in a coherent example, otherwise things will be forgottten. I want to take the books example for that, and build a CRUD web application (I have most of the code for a database version already) which uses dictionaries in a file (possibly JSON) as a backend.
This can then later be upgraded to a database version in the second semester by simply re-implementing the access functions.
All in all this is probably a better distribution of time.
