Dive Into Python 3 available

November 24, 2009

Yes, yes, a bit late. But: Mark Pilgrim’s excellent Dive Into Python has been adapted to Python 3, and is now available under CC-A-SA license (seen on LWN).

Case Study: Porting chardet to Python 3 documents my (ultimately successful) effort to port a non-trivial library from Python 2 to Python 3. It may help you; it may not. There’s a fairly steep learning curve, since you need to kind of understand the library first, so you can understand why it broke and how I fixed it. A lot of the breakage centers around strings.
