Description

Python’s rise in popularity has been steady and dramatic over the last 10 years, and developers are constantly finding new ways to use this general purpose programming language. This widespread use means that Python isn’t going anywhere any time soon—and it also means Python’s weaknesses are regularly brought into focus, creating a chance for other technologies to improve upon Python’s shortcomings and for Python to meet market needs. Join Python expert Austin Bingham for a live event where he’ll take a look at what we can anticipate from Python in the next few years, and learn why: Python has been displaced in some areas, it’s a good time for Python to consider some of its well-known weaknesses, the overall rate of change in the core of Python will stay low, the tooling around Python development will stabilize and improve, and we’ll start to recognize and settle on new best-practices.
