Building lightning-fast asynchronous APIs with FastAPI - Erry Kostala

Python 3 has brought on asyncio but there are still not many modules out there using it. One of the most ambitious and well-made python3 projects is FastAPI - A self-documenting, lightning-fast MVC framework that uses asyncio and python types to help developers build quickly and make APIs that keep performing as the project grows. I’m not a contributor to the project but I have used it in my previous job and loved it, and would love to spread the word as it’s still not that well-known and it’s growing!
About Erry: Senior software engineer, working for a company to save the NHS £1 billion!
