Asyncio is the new standard library module for doing asynchronous IO and concurrency in Python 3.4. In this talk, I'll discuss some earlier strategies for writing such code in Python. I'll cover some of the decisions that went into it's design. Then I'll walk through a tuturial on asyncio itself. Finally, I'll take some well known example code for Gevent and Twisted, and rewrite it in asyncio.
The Python Imaging Library is the go-to when you need to deal with images in Python. But sometimes it falls short. Some formats (PDF) are write-only. Some implementations (TIFF reading) are slow, or limited (TIFF writing). And what do you do about video data? This talk explores some alternative options, looking at strategies for using GraphicsMagick, ImageMagick, and ffmpeg from Python.
