Dmitry Nazarov will speak about the future of the Pythonic Web: ASGI & Daphne
The web evolves. There is an increasing demand for asynchronous programming. More and more protocols that do not follow the pattern of HTTP-style request/response cycle (most notably, WebSocket). There are brand-new concepts. Gladly, so evolves Python to answer the call.
In this speech we will examine the part of it that deserves your very attention: ASGI (Asynchronous Server Gateway Interface, the spec that is currently in-progress, but is now mostly complete) and Daphne (ASGI server).
We'll go through the stuff you're already familiar with: website on templates, REST API, WebSocket/HTTP/2. We'll see how it feels in action on Django/Flask cases. We'll also discuss distribution matters (e.g. Docker) and other nuances.
Dmitry Nazarov works for EXANTE (exante.eu) in St. Petersburg, Russia (2nd largest city of the country and it's IT capital). He is St. Petersburg Python User Group (meetup.com/spbpython) community organizer and PiterPy (PiterPy.com) program committee member. He is also a strong believer in both, Python & the modern web.
Usually there will also be the opportunity to give lightning talks. Please consider giving one and register yours on an EtherPad to be announced...
At about 8:45 pm we’ll move to a nearby restaurant.
