#100DaysOfWeb in Python Transcripts
Chapter: Days 37-40: Introduction to Pyramid framework
Lecture: Pyramid chapter intro
0:00 Welcome to your next four days. I hope you're super excited to learn about the Pyramid Web Framework. Pyramid is one of the top three
0:10 big web frameworks in Python. We have Django, we have Flask and we have Pyramid. Now, they have a cool little slogan here
0:16 The Start Small, Finish Big and Stay Finished Framework By Artisans, for Artisans. I really like the philosophy of Pyramid
0:23 and the way they maintain the framework. One of their core ideas is that you can get started really easy, but there's actually a lot of features
0:30 to grab onto and start using as your project grows. It's worth mentioning, at the time of this recording the website you're taking this course through
0:40 Talk Python Training, or training.talkpython.fm that site is built in Pyramid. talkpython.fm itself, another site, is built in Pyramid
0:48 the other podcasts I run, Pythonbytes.fm built in Pyramid, and they have been for about four years at the moment. And they have been bulletproof
0:57 super, super high performance better performance than Flask better performance than Django and really, really reliable.
1:05 On this site we get easily, ten millisecond response times from data driven pages that are pretty data intensive, actually.
1:13 So, really great, highly scalable framework that's worked great for us. There were times during some promotions we had thousands of users on the site
1:21 and we were serving them up on a $10 server and that $10 server was running at maybe 10% CPU. I mean, this framework is really, really awesome
1:30 it really will go far for you and I hope you're excited to learn it I'm excited to share it with you.
