Programmer’s Python: Async (I/O Press)
Wednesday, 12 October 2022

This book, subtitled "Threads, processes, asyncio & more" is part of a set of Something Completely Different books that look at what makes Python special and sets it apart from other programming languages. This volume is about asynchronous programming, something that is is hard to get right - but well worth the trouble. Mike James looks at how to ensure applications can make use of async code so avoiding wasting a huge amount of the machine’s potential.

<ASIN:1871962765>

Python has modules that let you work with threads and processes in sophisticated ways. These are the foundation on which asyncio is built and they are covered in depth along with futures, tasks and schedulers. The final three chapters are devoted to asyncio and making practical sense of a very complicated module. This is the book you need to understand all the options, trade-offs and gotchas.
