Litestar: Effortlessly Build Performant APIs

We all know about Flask and Django. And of course FastAPI made a huge splash when it came on the scene a few years ago. But new web frameworks are being creating all the time. And they have these earlier frameworks to borrow from as well. On this episode we dive into a new framework gaining a lot of traction called Litestar. Will it be the foundation of your next project? Join me as I get to know Litestar with its maintainers: Jacob Coffee, Janek Nouvertné, and Cody Fincher.

Finance - risk guy
Hey, I'm a finance and risk guy that is newer to Python, was using excel vba macros but once I saw the power and possibilities of Python, have been hooked ever since. Love the podcast, I think I am a wannabe developer, maybe some day, haha. Take it easy.

Awesome Python Goodness
This is the podcast that got me into listening to nearly only technical ones. All the episodes are fun and informative, and I can't recommend it enough for every Pythonista (and others).
