Looking for recommendations to learn about async programming


#1

My long term goal is to implement some sort of socket API for the importer, so there can be web GUIs (among
others) built for it. For discussion, see: [#3073](https://github.com/beetbox/beets/issues/3073

I don’t have that much experience yet though, and am certainly not ready for the job right away. So, I think I could really benefit from reading up on some fundamental theory on threading, async event-driven programming and the pipeline design pattern.

Could anyone recommend good books or other sources (blogs, videos) that will help me out? I’ve found some interesting talks on YouTube, but I notice not everything sticks too well because I lack fundamental knowledge. I’ll post this question on the discussion board as well.

Thanks!
