Dive into CPython 3.8 and beyond

This episode is carbon neutral.
Python 3.8 is coming soon. It's scheduled for release at the end of October 2019 and you can already download test versions today. Given that Python ships on an 18-month cycle, it's time to talk about what's coming for us Python developers in the fall.

On this episode, I meet up with Łukasz Langa and Anthony Shaw to chat about the highlights of this upcoming version of Python.

Also, quick show note, we recorded this on-location in Cleveland at PyCon 2019. There may be a small amount of background noise, but I think you'll barely notice.
