Ben Darnell, Tornado maintainer, is giving his first public presentation on Tornado, a Python web framework and asynchronous networking library.
This talk is open to anyone who is interested but is geared toward an audience with enough experience to understand a comparison of different concurrency models. Ben will describe the overall design of the framework - why use an asynchronous framework, and why this one in particular?
We'd like to thank BuzzFeed for graciously hosting us for this event!
