The Ring of Python
Presented by holger krekel (merlinux gmbh)
CPython 2.5/2.6/3.1, Jython, IronPython, PyPy, StacklessPython, UnladenSwallow, Cython ... what do we make of all these cool interpreter projects and versions? Where does competition help and where does it hamper?
In this interactive talk I'll highlight the main strengths of each of the Python interpreters. Furthermore, I'll discuss ways to leverage Python interpreters in a co-operative way, discuss challenges, projects and issues ahead and also briefly highlight 'execnet', one my own projects for bridging (Any) Python to (Any) Python. This is also the first time i am going to try out a new and funvisual presentation technique after several years of having done mostly text-based ones
