The asyncio Event Loop
In this lesson, you’ll learn about the Event Loop. You’ll see what it is and how to define one. The Event Loop is used to:
- perform IO tasks
- run asynchronous tasks
- run callbacks
In addition to learning about what it is, you’ll see how to change a normal
main() function into an event loop. You’ll see how to create numerous coroutines using
Future objects and
gather(). In the last section of the lesson, you’ll see an example demonstrating how using an asynchronous approach can make your code run faster.
