This is Jimmy Schementi's write-up of his talk on using Python in the Browser, with links to the video and slides:
CPython 2.5/2.6/3.1, Jython, IronPython, PyPy, StacklessPython, UnladenSwallow, Cython ... what do we make of all these cool interpreter projects and versions? Where does competition help and where does it hamper?
In this interactive talk I'll highlight the main strengths of each of the Python interpreters. Furthermore, I'll discuss ways to leverage Python interpreters in a co-operative way, discuss challenges, projects and issues ahead and also briefly highlight 'execnet', one my own projects for bridging (Any) Python to (Any) Python.
This talk will cover basics about writing cross-interpreter python programs. What to do and most of all what not to do. This will help you if you want at some point in time to run program on for example Java platform or faster python interpreter, but also if you want to keep it running between CPython releases.
