Blocking I/O-based connection assumes the caller blocks (waits) until the
response arrives.

With a non-blocking implementation, the caller does not wait, which means
your program can write
continuously but also that responses that arrive at a later point are
handled differently, often
forcing developers to use less familiar APIs and manage program state

Pika offers you to choose from multiple connection implementations. Michael
suggests you to start with the most straightforward one and when you have
that working,
switch to a non-blocking implementation (e.g. Tornado-based) which often
yields higher
