The Diary of the Walrus Operator


Everything old is new again. This time it's the highly debated Walrus operator and it's finally coming to Python 3.8! But "finally" is misleading; the := operator has been seen before! Let's dive into the origins of the := operator, its milestones in programming history, and its future in Python!

Talk Description

The Walrus operator is now a part of Python 3.8 and though heated debates are going on about it, I wanted to take a different approach to talking about it to fellow Pythonistas!

Following the form of a personal diary, I’ll share my research on the Walrus operator’s life story in programming history.

Most notable milestones, influential events, and insight on its use will be a diary entry and will leave the audience more informed about the cute Walrus operator!
