Discussion on: How I Built A Python Web Framework And Became An Open Source Maintainer

Absolutely — as some say, async is "all-in".

Yeah, and that's the divide right there. Async is basically a low level framework. If you adopt it, everything has to be modeled after it. The same way some people criticize some frameworks because they model your application instead of the other way around. Just food for thought.

Luckily in Python, projects like aio-libs are already on their way to building an async equivalent to our otherwise familiar synchronous world. :)

A part of me rejoices, another part of me wonders why we're reimplementing everything from scratch for the nth time :-D

I like it though, because I think it's also how we humans work. Our brain is basically a single-threaded concurrent systems that can deal with multiple things at once (to a certain extent) but only ever do one thing at a given time.

But is it truly? :-) Could it be a bunch of communicating sequential processes instead?

I think it kind of is at a physiological/unconscious level. But I know that's not how my conscious self works. 😁
