Writing FAST APIs with Falcon and PyPy
Submitted by Anoop Nayak (@anoopknayak) on Friday, 15 September 2017
Technical level: Intermediate
Performance in production is where Python lags behind in spite of all its versatility. With Falcon(an open source framework from Rackspace) we aim to close this gap too. This presentation is about getting up and running with Falcon and PyPy which has the highest performance compared to other Python frameworks which would be ideal for an intermediate Python developer who wants to do something faster than flask. This presentation also focuses on a well-structured way to manage the code in a project inspired by Miguel Grinberg’s API structure.
