Pynie: Python 3 on Parrot (#148)

Description

Pyine: Python 3 on Parrot

Presented by Allison Randal

Pynie is an implementation of Python 3 on Parrot. The goal of Pynie is to duplicate the pure-Python behavior of CPython 3.x, and perhaps eventually a C API compatibility layer. Parrot provides a set of compiler tools and core functionality common to many dynamic languages, so the core code of Pynie is lightweight. Pynie allows Python 3 libraries to be shared between multiple languages. This talk is an overview of the features Pynie currently supports and the work left to be done, together with an introduction to the internals of Pynie.
