PyCon 2009: PyPy status talk (#72)

Description

PyPy Status Talk

Presented by Holger Krekel and Maciej Fijalkowski

PyPy has come a long way. It's gone from being purely a research project to providing a flexible and reasonably fast Python Interpreter, itself implemented in Python. Although PyPy is not yet a viable CPython replacement, PyPy is able to run sophisticated python applications like Django and Twisted. In this talk, we'll focus on improvements that happened during the last year in PyPy. This talk will also explain the motivations driving current PyPy development and its targets for the future.
