Panel: Python VMs

Presented by Jacob Kaplan-Moss, Brett Cannon, Maciej Fijalkowski, Frank Wierzbicki, Dino Viehland

Python is lucky enough to have a healthy ecosystem of virtual machines (VMs) exist. CPython, Jython, IronPython, and PyPy are all used extensively by people in real-world situations. This panel brings together a representative from each of the major VMs to discuss where they are now, going in the future, and to answer questions from the community.

  • CPython: Brett Cannon
  • Jython: Frank Wierzbicki
  • IronPython: Dino Viehland
  • PyPy: Maciej Fijalkowski Moderation will be handled by Jacob Kaplan-Moss of Django.
