As some have found, gevent is one of the best kept secrets of Python. It gives you fast, evented network programming without messes of callbacks, code that is more Pythonic, and lets you use most regular Python networking libraries and protocol implementations. Now, let's build on this.
In this talk we learn how to throw together distributed services using gevent and a simple framework called gservice. We'll go from nothing to a distributed messaging system based on experiences building scalable, distributed systems at Twilio.
This talk will be full of code, live coding, and real production applications with guest appearances by other fun technologies like ZeroMQ, WebSocket, and Doozer.
