Is asyncio stack ready for web development?
a talk by Igor Davydenko
If you're developing web applications with Python you might have heard about asyncio stack (Python 3, asyncio, aiohttp, uvloop, etc.). It allows developers to create websites without using Django, Flask or other synchronous web frameworks.
Let's talk about why asyncio stack became popular for web development among Pythonistas, especially in Eastern Europe (Ukraine, Russia, etc). I will tell you about projects that are using it and how they compare to more traditional ones.
I will also talk about lessons learned from developing, testing and deploying application used to sign legal documents online in Ukraine: aiohttp.
This talk is suitable for both beginner and advanced Pythonistas.
I am a Python developer for last 11 years and I used to be a huge Flask fanboy, who trusted in Flask and its extensions. I created or maintained Flask-And-Redis, Flask-FlatPages, Flask-LazyViews, and Flask-Dropbox extensions.
Recently I switched to Python 3 and Asyncio stack on backend and with React.js applications on frontend. Check my work on rororo project.
I like making web applications and libraries for real world. I also like contributing to open source for all good things.
