PEP 572: The Walrus Operator

Dustin Ingram


In this talk, we'll learn about a highly controversial change to Python syntax, the rationale for it, and the fallout as the result of it. Along the way we'll go in-depth on how new ideas about Python are proposed, discussed, and become part of the language, what's unique about Python's process compared to other open source projects, and recent developments and what they mean for the future of the wider Python community.
