In the last few weeks, we had a close look at the how the situation
around COVID-19 is panning out. Unfortunately, things are not moving in
a direction where we’d feel confident to hold next year’s conference as
an in-person event in Dublin.
EuroPython 2022 in Dublin
After discussion with the venue, we decided to postpone the in-person
conference for another year, to July 11-17 2022 in Dublin, Ireland. We
are currently finalizing the details.
Since going online has proven to work well, we also want to keep the
momentum for EuroPython 2022 and are planning to run the event in a
hybrid version, where both speakers and attendees can optionally join
EuroPython 2021 Online
Given the experience with running EuroPython 2020 online this year, we
are sure that EuroPython 2021 will be a success as well.
We will take the experience we’ve gained from this year’s event to
improve the online version next year, simplify some aspects, reactivate
finaid and enable joining it in smaller groups to create a distributed
We’re still collecting ideas, so if you have any suggestions, we’d love
to hear them. Please write to helpdesk(a)europython.eu.

I am delighted to announce the release 2.0.0 of Austin. If you haven't
heard of Austin before, it is an open source frame stack sampler for
CPython, distributed under the GPLv3 license. It can be used to obtain
statistical profiling data out of a running Python application without a
single line of instrumentation. This means that you can start profiling a
Python application straightaway, even while it's running on a production
environment, with minimal impact on performance.
The simplest way of using Austin is by piping its output to FlameGraph
for a quick and detailed representation of the collected samples. The
latest release introduces a memory profiling mode which allows you to
profile memory usage.
Austin is a pure C application that has no other dependencies other than
the C standard library. Its source code is hosted on GitHub at
The README contains installation and usage details, as well as some
examples of Austin in action. Details on how to contribute to Austin's
development can be found at the bottom of the page.
Austin can be installed easily on the following platforms and from the
- Snap Store
- Debian repositories
Austin is also simple to compile from sources as it only depends on the
standard C library, if you don't have access to the above listed sources.
Besides support for Python 3.9, this new release of Austin brings a
considerable performance enhancement that allows it to sample up to 8
times faster than previous versions. But please do read on until the end
to find out about some new tools that take advantage of all the key
features of Austin.
Due to increasing popularity, the sample Python applications that were
included in the main repository have been moved to dedicated projects on
GitHub. The TUI can now be found at
while Austin Web is now available from
They can both be installed easily from PyPI, but in order to use them the
Austin binary needs to be on the PATH environment variable. These
projects now rely on the austin-python Python package that provides a
Python wrapper around Austin. If you are considering making your own
profiling tool based on Austin, this package can spare you from writing
boilerplate code, so it's worth having a look at it at
The documentation is hosted on RTD at
Finally, I am happy to announce the release of pytest-austin, a plugin
for pytest that allows you to set up performance regression testing by
simply decorating your existing pytest test suite. The plugin launches
Austin to profile your test runs, meaning that no further instrumentation
is required. For more details, check out the project on GitHub
Like the other Austin tools, pytest-austin can be installed easily from
You can stay up-to-date with the project's development by following

All the best,

Happy to announce a project I've been working on for some time that's
finally in beta: aiosnow, a MIT licensed Python 3 client library for
interacting with an ITSM cloud service, providing something not too
dissimilar to a database ORM.
I'm sharing this here as the library makes use of Python asyncio, and other
cool features like:
- Asynchronous generators, context managers
- Query condition chaining using Python bitwise operators
- Model Schema system implemented using Marshmallow
- The aiohttp library for working with remote HTTP APIs
It was built with modularity in mind, and is meant to be forked, hacked and
consumed in other projects - commercial or otherwise.
What's in it for me?
I do this for fun, to learn, and to support the asyncio backend of another
project I'm working on, which uses this library at its core.
Big thanks to the code contributors and donors!
I am happy to announce Guppy 3 3.1.0
Guppy 3 is a library and programming environment for Python,
currently providing in particular the Heapy subsystem, which supports
object and heap memory sizing, profiling and debugging. It also
includes a prototypical specification language, the Guppy
Specification Language (GSL), which can be used to formally specify
aspects of Python programs and generate tests and documentation from a
Guppy 3 is a fork of Guppy-PE, created by Sverker Nilsson for Python 2.
This is a major feature release. The main news in this release:
o Python 3.9 support, without subinterpreter support or inter-interpreter
o Added .byprod classifier via tracemalloc, and .prod to print tracemalloc
o Added .all to print all lines in a MorePrinter buffer.
o Added R_INSET relation for being contained by an unordered set.

Wing 7.2.6 improves exception reporting for pytest, implements 2w in vi
mode, fixes problems with setting up a new Django project, improves
auto-spacing for / and :, reduces CPU use when analyzing and waiting for
remote files, and makes a number of usability improvements.
== About Wing ==
Wing is a light-weight but full-featured Python IDE designed
specifically for Python, with powerful editing, code inspection,
testing, and debugging capabilities. Wing's deep code analysis provides
