  9. 9. zappa schedule
  10. 10. Asynchronous Task Execution from flask import Flask from zappa.async import task app = Flask(__name__) @task def make_pie(): """ This takes a long time! """ ingredients = get_ingredients() pie = bake(ingredients) deliver(pie) @app.route('/api/order/pie') def order_pie(): """ This returns immediately! """ make_pie() return "Your pie is being made!"
  11. 11. Going further • Database - can use RDS, Dynamo, Redshift etc • GeoDjango & binary libraries - issues if they get too big • Python 3 - now supported • Static files - use Whitenoise
