Lessons learned with asyncio ("Look ma, I wrote a distributed hash table!")


This talk introduces the asyncio module. I'll cover what it's for, how it works and describe how I used it to write a real-world networked application (a distributed hash table). We'll explore the event loop, co-routines, futures and networking with examples from my code. This won't be an exhaustive exposition. Rather, attendees will grasp enough of asyncio to continue with their own studies.
