The web micro framework potpourri

by Arif Amirani (speaking)

Web Development
Session type
Technical level


The intent is to expose attendees to the latest and greatest micro-framemworks available and provide enough insight on each one so as to be able to pick the right one for the job.


This will be a detailed session with code demos and walkthroughs for all the major (and active) micro-frameworks available with a sample application. The attendees will thus be aware of:

  • The state of the projects
  • The pros and cons of each
  • Difficultly level of implementation
  • Any gotchas

I would like to limit the number of frameworks to 5 as I would like to cover some details within the allocated 45 mins. The current list of frameworks are:

  • Bottle
  • Flask
  • cherrypy
  • Bobo

If you would like to add more to the list above, please do comment.
