Python3! What is it good for?

This month we'll be talking about Python3. Should you be using it? What is it good for? What will it take to pry Python2.7 from your cold, dead virtualenv?

Jace Browning will talk about his experience using Python 3 to develop his capstone project at GVSU: Doorstop. His presentation will cover some of the challenges he faced as well as some of the more enjoyable parts of the language.

Ben Rousch will talk about PDF Serenity Now, a project he wrote in Python3.

He will also lead a discussion about some of the improvements in Python3 that are not available in Python2.7, and some reasons you should still stick with Python2.7. If you have any questions or opinions about Python3, please bring them to the meeting - we'll be happy to discuss them.

We will also be giving away a copy of the "Python Cookbook, 3rd Edition: Recipes for Mastering Python 3" which O'Reilly has generously donated to the GRPUG.
