Episode 017: The One About Python 3

· transcript
At long last, we finally get down to some Real Talk about Python 3. In this episode, Mike and Dave are joined by guests Nick Coghlan and Alex Gaynor; our discussion gets into the history of Python 3's development, why it's compelling, whether it's a failure, and more. We also chat for a bit about Alex's new Cryptography library and the downfall of "abstinence-only" crypto education. All this plus some news and the return of the return of Python trivia! Read on for some additional thoughts as well as a plethora of links for this episode. First of all, we'd like to apologize for the delay. We had almost managed to settle into an every-other-month cadence when we were stricken with scheduling conflicts and the unexpected death of our editing platform. (And oh, how the sadhorns did play!) Work and pre-PyCon complications followed. Secondly, a heads up--though we're trying to improve the audio quality (Dave has a microphone now!), Google Hangout seems to have betrayed us, introducing mystery pops and clicks that have thus far resisted our attempts to scrub them out in post. For some reason they seem to only affect one segment of the recording, so please bear with it for a couple minutes--the main interview portion of the episode is click-free. We're very sorry, and all we can do about it at this point is to promise that we'll keep working on it. While we were fighting through all of the above, Python 3.4 was released, and it's really exciting because it has seriously cool things that we somehow failed to discuss at all during our recording session a couple weeks prior (though we may have mentioned some highlights last time). Behold, a parade of links, for your clicking enjoyment!
