You can also watch the todo app intro as a 10 Minute video introduction

Step 1: Adding a todo model

Basics working with models. Building a NoSQL Todo list model.

Step 2: Adding a handler to our app

More in depth Docs and Tutorials

These are actually a mixture of documentation and hands on tutorial. So you can execute the actual commands while reading through the sections.

1. Models (storing your data)

2. Handlers (creating your API)

3. Views
