Tornado is a framework for building web applications built to scale to thousands of simultaneous standing connections. This scalability is achieved... primarily through the non-blocking Tornado web server. Until recently, using MongoDB with Tornado meant using the blocking PyMongo driver. AsyncMongo (created by bit.ly) is an open source library for accessing MongoDB from Tornado applications. This session will introduce both AsyncMongo and the Tornado web framework.
