Exploring Python Code Objects: Python is an interpreted language, right? Wrong! In this talk, Dan Crosta dives deep into Python bytecode, and reveals what actually happens in everyone's favorite Python program, 'print "Hello world"'. Learn to use the compile() builtin and its best friend the exec statement, understand what your Python code is doing with the dis and compiler modules, and discover new ways to explore and enjoy Python at a low level.
