Workshop - Build Your Own Async


In this workshop, you’ll learn about Python’s various async features by building your own simple async library. Topics include generators, coroutines, event loops, non-blocking I/O, threads, and more. Note: the workshop is not about asyncio, but you’ll learn a lot about what makes it work.
