I’ve been offered a position to speak at this year’s Open Source Developers’ Conference on the internals of the Python compiler. I’ll be introducing the audience to the basic workings of the Python bytecode compiler, demonstrating how one would add a new construct to the language.

If you’re at the conference and interested in messing with the guts of a real compiler but not quite sure where to start, please come along. The only real prerequisite is a sound understanding of the C language.

The conference runs from the 2nd to the 5th of December. Registration should open some time in October if you’re interested in tagging along.

Now, back to my paper …
