Async Python is not faster

There’s a popular perception that async Python (in particular asyncio) is faster than normal, synchronous Python. I have done benchmarking for a realistic case and found that this is not true. Moreover there are reasons to worry about the performance of async Python under load. I also want to talk about the reasons why this is, and when async is appropriate and when is it not.
