CPython and Pypy core developer
This podcast features two Pypy and one CPython core devs. Projects like Pypy and CPython are complex undertakings. Even to start contributing, people are intimidated. As maintainers of such projects, the amount of knowledge accumulated over the years is just huge. This episode explores the history and evoltion of Pypy. It debunks the myth of it’s difficult to contribute to Pypy. It covers efforts undertaken to help people get initiated and progress. We also get to listen to Bahutan’s own experience of being onboarded to the Pypy project. It also contrasts the Pypy experience with the CPython one. You also get a lots of Pythonista gems along the way. A dream podcast for me!
