[Video 181] Amy Hanlon: Investigating Python Wats

Every programming language has its surprises and dark corners. Even Python, which prides itself on regular syntax and consistent behavior, has them. This talk, by Amy Hanlon, not only points to some of Python’s odder behaviors, but explains why these things happen. The talk is both funny and interesting, and helps us to understand how programming languages are implemented, not just used. The talk’s title refers to Gary Bernhardt’s famous “Wat” talk, in which he points to oddities in Ruby and JavaScript.
