The State of Async Web Frameworks


Web programming now is a very different beast from the 1990s; yet most popular web frameworks- and programming language models are rooted in trying to use the same old approach. There is strong trend to change this: this is that state of that trend.

Talk Description

In this talk, we will describe where we’ve come from in terms of the problems web frameworks were tackling in the early 2000s to what the problem is now. Let’s look at which languages are providing support and how they’re doing it. I’ll focus in and describe how Python approaches the problem. And then I’ll recap with the performance graphs of multiple languages and frameworks from the Tech Empower Benchmarks.
