Python 3000

Guido van Rossum, Language Architect, Creator of Python

Track: Python
Date: Thursday, July 26
Time: 2:35pm - 3:20pm
Location: Portland 256

Since the renewed Python 3000 effort was announced at PyCon 2006, a lot has happened. We've implemented about half of the promised changes in a branch, we've solidified the schedule, there's a refactoring tool that can do source-to-source translations, and we've produced several gigabytes of discussion about language change proposals (most of which were deemed to radical in the end :-). This talk will review the Python 3000 road map, status, and what this means for the average Python user.
