This talk will examine how Python's internal Unicode representation has changed from its introduction through the latest major changes in Python 3.3. I'll present properties of the current Unicode implementation like algorithmic complexity and standard compliance. The talk will also compare Unicode in Python with some other languages. Finally, I'll look into the future of Python's Unicode.
The Python community is abuzz about the major speed gains PyPy can offer pure Python code. But how does PyPy JIT actually work? This talk will discuss how the PyPy JIT is implemented. It will include descriptions of the tracing, optimization, and assembly generation phases. I will demonstrate each step with a example loop.
