Webinar: “Demystifying Python’s async and await Keywords” with Michael Kennedy

Python has long had a variety of approaches for parallelism, with async/await and asyncio being the modern approach. These topics, though, are difficult to grasp and compare. Want to get to the bottom of it? Join expert Python trainer Michael Kennedy for an approachable, visual treatment of the topic.

  • Aimed at intermediate/advanced Python users


The material in this webinar is a subset of Michael’s fast-paced and comprehensive Async Techniques and Examples in Python course at Talk Python Training.


Python’s async and parallel programming support is highly underrated. In this webcast, we will introduce the entire spectrum of Python’s parallel APIs. Then we will focus in on the most promising, most useful, and modern feature of Python’s async capabilities: the async and await keywords.

During the webcast, we will build a small application that interacts with web APIs using async and await. We’ll close it out by covering a library and technique that allows us to join Python’s disparate parallel APIs into one super API that is easier to work with.
