Keynote speaker Friday

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

Look up the birth and death of javascript

Look at writer of django talking about javascript

Competition Go

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 ?

Deploys neatly

Openstack parts rewriten in go, faster less memory

We need to invest in improving deployment
