Introducing Aspen and Gittip
Chad Whitacre, Gittip
Gittip.com is a platform for sustainable crowd-funding. Launched in 2012, Gittip currently has about 800 active users exchanging about $2,000 per week in small cash gifts. The site is implemented using the Aspen web framework, and in this talk I'll introduce both Aspen and Gittip by looking at pages of the site and how they are implemented with Aspen.
Python Coroutines and Async I/O
Jesse Davis, 10gen
Python generators can act as coroutines, making very complex control flows straightforward and efficient when you’re doing async I/O. I’ll show how to use coroutines with Tornado and my package, Toro, in Python 2.7.
In his PyCon keynote, Guido announced the direction async will go in Python 3: a standard event loop and cleaner coroutines. I’ll describe the improvements Python 3.3 brings to coroutines and what to expect in Python 3.4.
