Randy Barlow presents on the new asyncio standard library. Randy says, “If you are like me, you may have been stuck working with Python 2.7, staring over the fence at Python 3 and wishing you could use all the cool new stuff. Or maybe you couldn’t use Python 3 because electric eels keep stinging you whenever you try. Whatever the case may be, we’ll be talking in this session about the new asyncio library that was introduced in Python 3.4 and greatly enhanced with the async/await keywords in Python 3.5. Participants will get a high level overview of the library, and the concepts surrounding asynchronous programming. Maybe we’ll even make a fun toy program together, who knows? This would be a great talk to attend if you know Python but haven’t taken the time to explore this API.”
Randy Barlow works full time on the Fedora Project. He is primarily involved in leading development on Bodhi, Fedora’s update management system, and with building out Fedora’s scaled container registry. He does not enjoy long walks on the beach and is an expert on pizza.
Extemporaneous “lightning talks” of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don’t need to be pre-announced. Plenty of free after hours parking is available in the upper level of the deck behind WebAssign (turn through the median just before the intersection of Varsity and Main Campus Drives). If the door is locked, call the number posted on the door. An after-meeting location for food and beverage will be decided at the meeting (usually BaDa Wings at Mission Valley). Come join us for a fun and informative evening.
