Notes from Friday’s keynote speech at PyConUK
Used in animation to move assets
Used as a teaching language
What are the issues
Some embedded systems will never upgrade to Python 3.
Ability to wrap and call other specialist languages like fortress, c++.
We have to continue to be able to call into other libraries of new languages via wrappers etc.
Ability to hack
Neat built in threaded support with channels etc
Feels like Python paired down, aimed to be low level
Gorun so fast it almost feels like not a compiled language
However, read about eventloop or goloop ?
Openstack parts rewriten in go, faster less memory
We need to invest in improving deployment
