March 10th 1:20 p.m. – 4:40 p.m.
Come join David Beazley and Brian Jones, editors of the new all-Python-3 edition of the Python Cookbook, for a fun and interactive tour through what's new in Python 3. David and Brian will walk you through the features, differences, and porting challenges that they have encountered updating the examples in the Python Cookbook to use Python 3. Got a challenge? Bring it to the tutorial, as David and Brian take on all sorts of examples through a lively mix of interactive demos, examples, and discussion. Participants should install Python 3 on their computer and plan to play along.


This tutorial will start with a guided tour through the "what's new in Python 3?" document, with more examples motivated by our experiences working on the Python 3 Cookbook. Attendees should plan on bringing challenges for us to address - we will demonstrate the use of Python 3 to solve all manner of practical problems as suggested by the audience.
