Elevator pitch

FastAPI has been growing a lot lately, but people arenโ€™t really aware of the packages that were the basis for its foundation.

On this talk, we are going to explore Starlette, the web framework on which FastAPI is built on top of. ๐Ÿš€


Starlette is the package that contains the core logic of FastAPI. Itโ€™s a timid, and less known project in comparison to the latter.

Weโ€™ll understand what Starlette really is, and what it does for FastAPI. We are going to explore both frameworks in a comparative way, to understand the things that are responsibility from one package and the other.

After this talk, you are going to understand more about the internals of one of the most popular web frameworks in Python.
