What lies ahead? Python’s future strengths and challenges
a talk by Naomi Ceder

What does the future hold for Python and for our community? Both have grown in ways we couldn’t have imagined years ago, but what lies ahead? We will begin with a look at the history and growth Python and our community and where we are today. Then we’ll consider some possible trends and coming challenges as well as the strengths we have to deal with them.
