Attendees will hopefully learn of some of the more interesting features coming in Python 3.3, when compared to both Python 2.7 and 3.2.
This will be a review session, covering some of the interesting features in Python 3.3.
For the benefit of attendees that are still primarily using Python 2.x, the presentation will also cover a few of the key advantages of the Python 3.x series that aren't available in Python 2.7 or as backports on the Python Package Index.
