Sailing to Python 3 land
asldevi (~asldevi) |
There is lot of advancement in adoption of Python 3 lately. If you're still using Python 2.x in your project(s), this talk is for you.
The focus of the talk is on the following
- Why should one migrate to Python 3
- shiny new features out there that one shouldn't resist to make use of
- status of major library support
- What are the tools available to make the switch easy
- Picking your migration strategy
- Experiences with the migration
- Common pitfalls
Some experience with Python 2.x is preferred, although not mandatory.
The outline of the presentation is here on which I'll improve upon.
