In this episode, we're going to dive into FormView. We use FormView any time that we have a form that is not based on a model instance. Think of it similarly to when you use Form instead of ModelForm, in the built-in django.forms module.

Although we can use FormView on its own, typically we're going to be using Model Instance based forms, and FormView lays the groundwork for all of those generic views, while also allowing to flexibly use on forms that aren't based on model instances. Enjoy!
