Ever wondered how you might experiment with your own syntax changes to the Python programming language? Learn about the internals of Python as I dissect the steps required to introduce a new keyword to the language.
In this presentation I’ll walk through the Python source code explaining how the various parts form parts of a fairly common generalized compiler architecture, with a virtual machine thrown in for good measure.
Attendees will gain an understanding of how they too might go about contributing changes to Python.
Tom is an Australian-born software developer currently residing in Portland, OR, USA.
