All Things Pythonic
New Python 3000 Video and Slides
by Guido van van Rossum
February 26, 2007
Video and powerpoint slides of my recent Python 3000 talks are now online.


I gave two versions of a new talk on Python 3000 (a.k.a. Py3k or Python 3.0) recently. The first time, a preview, was on February 14, at Google in Mountain View. It is now up on Google Video (here).

The second time was on February 24, at PyCon 2007 in Dallas. The powerpoint slides are now up on (here). (I rearranged the talk a bit based on the feedback I got on the Google talk, so the slides don't exactly match the video, but they are mostly close.)

If after viewing these you have questions about the implications for the transition from Python 2.x to Python 3.0, please join us on python-dev (start here). Plans are emerging to add many features to Python 2.6 (which will be released a few months before 3.0) that will ease the transition, e.g. backporting selected Py3k features and (optional) warnings about features that will be gone in 3.0.

About the Blogger

Guido van Rossum is the creator of Python, one of the major programming languages on and off the web. The Python community refers to him as the BDFL (Benevolent Dictator For Life), a title straight from a Monty Python skit. He moved from the Netherlands to the USA in 1995, where he met his wife. Until July 2003 they lived in the northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC with their son Orlijn, who was born in 2001. They then moved to Silicon Valley where Guido now works for Google (spending 50% of his time on Python!).
