The 2.x series of Python is officially over, but converting code to Python 3 is easier than you think. Over the weekend, I spent an evening converting the frontend code of a 3D renderer (and its corresponding PySide version) to Python 3, and it was surprisingly simple in retrospect, although it seemed relatively hopeless during the refactoring process.

It has support for custom key bindings, mouse gestures, theming, scripting, and much more.
When you are working with complex distributed systems, you will likely come across the need for concurrent processing. At Mode.net, we deal daily with real-time, fast and resilient software. Building a global private network that dynamically routes packets at the millisecond scale wouldnât be possible without a highly concurrent system.
At Red Hat, part of my job is to ensure that company messages maintain their meaning and effectiveness in my native languageâItalianâso that customers in my region can learn not only about our products and services but also about our organizational values.
The work tends to be simple and straightforward. But in an open organization, even the tasks that seem small can present big opportunities for learning about the power of working the open way.

They âlive in a very tactile world,â have a sense of smell, respond to sound, and use taste to âsense danger and drought and even to […]

How does Martin Scorsese direct a movie? Younger filmmakers have been studying at his feet trying to figure that out for more than four decades.

The benefit, of course, is speed.
"foo" > "bar" is around 25% faster

is able to input filepaths as ByteStrings, manipulate them, and operate
on the files, all without using String.
It's extensively tested, not only does it run all the same doctests that the filepath library does, but each function is quickchecked to behave the same as the equivilant function from filepath.
