Revisiting Strings, Unicodes and Encoding
Everyone sort of knows how strings, unicodes and encoding works. But then again, no one really does. Here is a visit back to the basics, so that we can unlearn a lot of things, relearn a whole set of new concepts and discern the differences between python 2 and 3 in this regard.

I am the product manager at KiSSFLOW. Before that i had been an architect behind toolsforagile.com and was the co founder of tourmyapp.com. I have been writing python for around 10 years now. While the amount of code i write has greatly reduced over the last couple of years, I still find time to hack that odd weekend to crunch data, and do other fun stuff.
