Lets build an async web framework!

Audience: Intermediate


In this hands-on tutorial, you'll gain a deeper understanding of how async web frameworks work by implementing your own from scratch. We'll build a minimalistic one that handles the ASGI (Asynchronous Server Gateway Interface) request/response cycle, routing, controllers, (options for templates and data layer, web sockets). Along the way, you'll gain a deeper understanding of the decisions web frameworks make, inner workings, the difference between WSGI and ASGI and the why of this.
