This tutorial will introduce concurrency through python coroutines. Using a simple "slow" web service for an example, we will explore writing a client to perform concurrent requests, and then how to write the example service itself. The tutorial will also consider the purpose of concurrent programming, how concurrency differs from parallelism, and will discuss python syntax for coroutines.
In this session we build a Chuck Norris joke-telling Chat Bot! We'll write our bot using Python and package it up as a Docker image. You'll learn about Webhooks and their importance in cloud applications, Micro-Services and the Cisco Spark Collaboration Cloud. This session is designed to be fun and hands on, so make sure to bring your laptop, sense of humor and great questions!
