Quart; a asyncio alternative to Flask / GeoPandas

Thursday, 24th May at CodeNode, London

This meetup was organised by The London Python Group in May 2018

At this month's London Python Group, we'll be looking at a asyncio alternative to Flask, and the geospatial extension for Pandas. Don't miss it!

Quart; a asyncio alternative to Flask

Flask is a great web mirco-framework, that is best utilised with event-loop concurrency. Sadly with Flask the event-loop framework can't be asyncio, although some extensions (Flask-Aiohttp) have tried. Quart is the solution as it shares the Flask API and is based on asyncio. In addition Quart goes beyond Flask adding HTTP/2 and websockets.

This talk will outline why event-loop concurrency is a good choice for web servers, why asyncio is a good choice and then give an overview of Quart, demonstrating features that go beyond the Flask framework.

A Few Things to Remember About Python

Two things I have come across in the past week at work that I thought were good points to bring up with people and remind them of the tools that you have available with Python (remember it is batteries included!)
