Falcon: The bare-metal Python web framework

Episode #129, published Thu, Sep 14, 2017, recorded Mon, Jul 17, 2017

Full featured web frameworks such as Django are great. But sometimes, living closer to the network layer is just the thing you need.

This week you'll meet Kurt Griffiths and John Vrbanac who work on the Falcon web framework. It's a bare-metal Python web API framework for building very fast app backends and microservices.

How bare metal? Well, other frameworks like the Hug REST framework even build upon Falcon.
