Guido van Rossum at Oxford Union

YOUTUBE 7kn7NtlV6g0 Creator of Python Programming Language, Guido van Rossum | Oxford Union

Perhaps fortunately coincident with Python 2.7 end of life on December 31, 2019. This Oxford talk was published on December 30, 2019.

For most interesting part of this talk, in my opinion, fast forward to 29 minutes and the Q&A with Oxford University students.

- Haskell direction for Python? - Python for girls? - What would you design differently in Python today?

Python is an interpretive programming language on an object oriented design. Tellingly, object capabilities are not mentioned in the talk, students have shifted their attention to functional programming.
