Hi, my name is Henrique and recently I made a side project for a hospital where a smart thermometer notify a employee when the blood refrigerator get its temperature off the expected. The only part of the project that i was not involved was the creation of the web app, so i made one as a proof of concept and it turned out so great that i made a tutorial. So if you watch carefully you are going teach you how to make a web app using flask that interacts with a mqtt broker.

This tutorial will cover how to work with flask and how to create a simple API and a web app that notify the user when a event is triggered. During the tutorial you will learn how to setup the environment both for Windows and for Linux, understand how flask work and how to build applications with it.
