West Yorkshire Python User Group

The West Yorkshire Python User Group (WYPy) have been meeting monthly since 2007. Our meetings are free, and usually include at least one talk, as well as a trip to the pub.

We discuss our meetings on the Python Yorkshire and Humberside Google Group and you can also follow us on Twitter at @WYPython.

Stormy Webber - Tornado for everyone

Thursday May 9, 2013

This month we have another invited guest speaker!

About the Talk

An introductory talk to building fast non-blocking async web services with Tornado, especially relevant to Django, Flask, bottle, web.py, Pyramid, Zope, Gevent, Twisted and every other web (or not) dev interested in learning what makes Tornado special for such tasks.

This will be especially relevant to Django, Flask, bottle, web.py, Pyramid, Zope, Gevent, Twisted and every other web (or not) dev interested in learning what makes Tornado special for such tasks.

Bonus: advanced tips and tricks for migrating from current systems and working with technologies such as WebSockets and Server Sent Events in Tornado.

Bonus bonus: Tornado 3 and Python 3.4 style futures for less confusing async.
