It’s ten years since the Gothenburg Python User Group was founded and we will celebrate this at a special meeting with a guest speaker. Robert Smallshire is coming down from Oslo to give us a presentation. HiQ is sponsoring the meeting by hosting us in their office and providing sandwiches and drinks. Hopefully also cake. Praqma is paying for the costs of bringing in the speaker. Many thanks to all the sponsors, we hope that many GothPy members, past and present, will also come!
Talk : Coroutine Concurrency in Python 3 with asyncio
This session can serve as an introduction to coroutine-based concurrency for those new to the idea irrespective of programming language, and window into how asynchronous programming in Python works in theory and in practice. Around 80% of the session is code and live demonstration, with 20% supporting material.
