Python 2 will no longer be supported past 2020, yet many organizations still haven’t made the switch to Python 3. This talk by Philip Semanchuk is for anyone facing a 2-to-3 migration that they’d like to feel more confident about. Attendees will leave with the outline of a migration plan, some suggested focus areas, a knowledge of helpful tools, and links to resources they can use after the talk.

Philip Semanchuk [http://pyspoken.com/] is a freelancer with over 25 years of experience, the last 10 of which have been principally in Python. He is the author and maintainer of the posix_ipc extension. He has spoken at TriPython multiple times and has also spoken at the Piedmont-Triad Python User Group, PyOhio, PyData, and PyCarolinas. Outside the office, Philip enjoys gardening, kayaking, and performing small theatrical roles. Inside the office, colleagues tend to object.

Extemporaneous “lightning talks” of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don’t need to be pre-announced.

Park in the municipal deck on the other side of the Arts Council across W. Morgan St. The after-meeting will be around the corner at Bull McCabe’s Irish Pub. Come join us for a fun and informative evening.
