asyncio becomes quite popular now.
At first glance the approach looks very similar to classic synchronous way: just put `await` before every async function call, that's it.
But the real usage feedback demonstrates non obvious pitfalls.
Surprisingly it's not task synchronization but timeouts and task cancellation.
Another pain is async API design: there is no guideline for async approach published yet. The speaker went through this way, he paid fare share of mistakes.
The talk collects learned lessons of four years of development such libraries: asyncio itself, aiohttp, database drivers like aiopg/aiomysql and other projects under https://github.com/aio-libs umbrella
