AsyncIO Intro

This month Josh will give an intro talk on AsyncIO, a new library within Python 3.4 facilitating asynchronous applications. Or as the documentation puts it "This module provides infrastructure for writing single-threaded concurrent code using coroutines, multiplexing I/O access over sockets and other resources, running network clients and servers, and other related primitives." Ya that. 

We will also continue with the Module of the Month and a look into Dave's ray tracing app. Rich will give a run down of Python in the news and we'll have a Q&A time as an open forum where you can bring any questions you may have. We always encourage anyone to bring questions at any point, we just really wanted to highlight that fact. 

Cheers! Hope to see you there!


Location Information

The map link above for our location is not sufficient, so I have a more detailed and annotated map that should be referenced:

map to Bausch and Lomb Hall at the University of Rochester

(parking and walking directions)

The meeting will be in Bausch and Lomb Hall, room 407.

• Find the elevator, go to the 4th floor and exit to your right.

• At the end of the hall, make another right.

• Walk to the very end of the hall past the fire doors.

• You are now at Room 407.

    Keep an eye on this:

    uWSGI integration with AsyncIO will really open doors for it's adoption. I believe that about the only way to really utilize AsyncIO in an existing web app is to create an event loop for each page that would find it useful. I posed this as a question to the Stack Overflow-verse (, we will see what people have to say.

    I added the script files and links that I used to create my presentation to GitHub

    Here is the wiki page that had my news items listed. RocPy organizers should feel free to login to the wiki and add any content they feel is important. :-)

    That does seem more useful. If you are going to collect a bunch of stuff together it makes sense to keep them in an expected order.

    It appears as though I misspoke on my response to Dave's question about the Gather() functionality which collects the results of a series of results from concurrently running coroutines and/or futures.

    The results are returned in the order they are added to the event loop, which is really more useful

    I Knew nothing about Python, but have heard and interested in Python's application in parametric design.

      Yes. Generative architecture, possibly using environmental factors as parameters to make self-generative architectural massing.
