Python 3 Async/Await: Better Concurrency
Join us on Tuesday, October 2nd for our monthly Django District event! Vic Kumar will be covering Async/Await functionality introduced in Python 3. Abstract: In this talk, we will take a look at Python 3's relatively new async/await syntax. We will examine why we need asynchronous routines, how this compares with the previous yield from syntax introduced in version 3.2. We will look at a few code samples to help familiarize use with the syntax, and we will look at how this new syntax is being used in the django-channels framework to build distributed, asynchronous Django applications. Food will be provided. Agenda: • 6:30-7:00pm - Arrive, catch up, and eat • 7:00-7:10pm - Announcements • 7:10-8:00pm - Talk + Q&A
