The Ups and Downs of Migrating to Python 3: A Pragmatic Approach

Deciding whether to use Python 2 or Python 3 for new projects has been
a touchy subject for the past few years in the Python community.
Julian will overview the pros and cons of choosing to use each
version, surveying the major novelties (and frustrations) introduced
in Python 3 and the reasons why one might want to think hard before
picking one or the other. Julian will also discuss a case study (or
two) that shed light on how porting existing projects to Python 3 can
prove non-trivial. Finally, no discussion on why or if to move to
Python 3 would be complete without some  speculation on where the
future of the language lies, and what Python might have in store for
us in the next few years.

RSVP will open on Jan 31st at 4pm.
