A Little Bit of Python.

Initially based on the podcast "A Little Bit of Python", by Michael Foord, Andrew Kuchling, Steve Holden, Dr. Brett Cannon and Jesse Noller.

They are: Michael Foord (author of IronPython in Action and maintainer of unittest), Andrew Kuchling (creator of PyCrypto and one of the webmasters), Steve Holden (PSF chairman), Dr. Brett Cannon (author of importlib amongst other things) and Jesse Noller (maintainer of multiprocessing).

Several topics are covered in this 40-minute episode:

  • Python 2.7 beta 1 released.
  • PEP 3147: New bytecode directory layout.
  • Google's Summer of Code beginning.
  • SEC proposes mandating Python's use in financial filings.

Hi Hutch,

This is a syndicated show so the content is older than normal.
