| recording | corresponding blog post | code

Everyone’s talking about it. Everyone’s using it. But most likely, they’re doing it wrong, just like we did.

This talk walks through common mistakes and antipatterns, drawing from experience with how we’ve used asyncio in Spotify’s infrastructure. We learn how to approach asynchronous programming with Python’s asyncio library, take away some best practices, and what pitfalls to avoid.
