Lecture: Python and Web Sockets
Python offers multiple tools that make integration of Web Sockets a piece of cake. This talk showcases code and concepts of using web sockets in most used Python Web frameworks: Tornado and Django.
Modern web-apps require bi-directional communication, reacting not only to user actions but also to server events. This can be achieved elegantly using Web Sockets, a protocol standardized by W3C to be a default tool for full-duplex connections on the Web.
Although most web-frameworks do not support Web Socket integration out of the box, Python has multiple options available making it a piece of cake. This talk showcases integrating Web Sockets in Python web-apps, focusing on situations that can make good use of it and presenting implementations with most popular frameworks: Tornado and Django. We will explore a similar style but different underlying technologies of both, and finish with a live demo.
