Using Asyncio in Python (O'Reilly)
Friday, 13 March 2020

In this book, subtitled "Understanding Python's Asynchronous Programming Features", author Caleb Hattingh provides a basic understanding of asyncio’s building blocks - enough to get started writing simple event-based programs. He also covers why asyncio offers a safer alternative to pre-emptive multi-tasking (threading) and how this API provides a simple way to support thousands of simultaneous socket connections. Asyncio is complicated because it aims to solve problems in concurrent network programming for both framework and end-user developers, but most developers need only a small subset of the whole asyncio API, and this book aims to help you pick out the right features.
