Flyte School: Empowering Workflows - Building Sensors and Agents in Flyte

Agent is a long-running stateless service that can be used to execute tasks. It reduces the overhead of creating a pod for each task. In addition, it’s easy to scale up and down the agent service based on the workload. Agent services are designed to be language-agnostic. In the session, we will shine on custom Agent development.
