Python is undergoing a performance renaissance. We already have Python 3.11 20-40% faster than even Python 3.10. On this episode, we'll dive into a new proposal to make Python even more efficient using lazy imports laid out in PEP 690. We have all three folks involved on the episode: Carl Meyer, Germán Méndez Bravo, and Barry Warsaw. Are you ready to get into making Python faster still? Let's dive in.
