Abstract (max 250 letters):
- This talk describes cool and novel language features of the PyPy project (a
- next generation Python interpreter) which are made possible by its flexible
- architecture. The talk focuses mostly on showcasing interesting and useful
- features together with example usages and less about their implementation.
+Some three years and two CCC talks later, we'd like to present
+a variety of results and features of the PyPy project. Topics will
+include lightweight threading, low-level and high level backends,
+e type-inferencing extension compiler, lazy evaluation and
+applications of the PyPy translation toolchain, writing custom
Description (250-500 words):
- PyPy is a reimplementation of Python written in Python itself, flexible and
- easy to experiment with. Due to its flexibility it is easy to add language
- features that are sometimes hard to implement in more traditional VM
- implementations. We have implemented a number of such features, some of them
- greatly enhancing the expressivity and flexibility of the language.
- XXX add more stuff
+PyPy is a reimplementation of Python written in a restricted subset of
+Python itself, flexible and easy to experiment with. Due to its flexibility
+it is easy to add language features that are sometimes hard to implement in
+more traditional VM implementations. We have implemented a number of such
+features, some of them enhancing the expressiveness and flexibility
+of the language. In addition there are some interesting applications of the
+translation toolchain that go beyond its original design goal of translating
+the Python interpreter to low-level languages.
+One of the language features the talk will showcase is the use of
+OS-independent microthreads. With PyPy we can run millions
+of microthreads, their number limited only by memory. The scheduling
+of these threads can be done in various ways. One of them is to
+use Oz-like (and Prolog-like) dataflow variables for
+synchronization. Another one is to explicitly state which
+threadlet is supposed to run.
+Another interesting feature which is not common in other object oriented
+languages is transparent lazy evaluation of functions.
+The translation toolchain has a variety of targets which Restricted Python

+We also intend to present some just-in-time efforts.
+Oh, and development of PyPy is actually partly funded by the
