- What does "The Journey to the kernel" mean?

Python is a high-level dynamic programming language. As a result, a lot of details are abstracted. On day to day basis, libraries and language take care of memory allocation, garbage collection, cross-platform execution, system calls, etc. In this meetup, let's discuss the internals of the libraries, core Python, memory optimization and internal working, etc.

All talking slots are taken
