PyCon South Africa & sprint

Hi all,

For those of you that happen to be from South Africa: don't miss PyCon ZA 2013, next October 3rd and 4th! Like last year, a few of us will be there. There will be the first talk about STM getting ready (a blog post about that should follow soon).

Moreover, general sprints will continue on the weekend (5th and 6th). Afterwards, Fijal will host a longer PyPy sprint (marathon?) with me until around the 21th. You are welcome to it as well! Write to the mailing list or to fijal directly (fijall at, or simply in comments of this post.

--- Armin

Hey lads, any change of 64-bit arm pypy build?

now that hardware is finally generally available...

I'm sure someone at the conference has the hw, perhaps already rooted?

we don't have access to 64bit ARM. feel free to help us. also it's quite a bit of work

Hey Armin

Thanks for the awesome presentations :-)

I'm very excited to try it out soon. I was wondering, would it not be useful to try and get the "with atomic" statement at the very least working on regular CPython? (just operating on the GIL, or simulated with a lock). This could smooth over migration somewhat?

Also, thanks for your live demo of cffi, It is so much simpler than ctypes :-)

Hi Nikolas.

with atomic can be trivially available on CPython (and not do anything beyond have a lock)
