Leysin Winter Sprint

PyPy Leysin Winter Sprint: 15-22nd January 2012

The next PyPy sprint will be in Leysin, Switzerland, for the eighth time. This is a fully public sprint: newcomers and topics other than those proposed below are welcome.

Goals and topics of the sprint

  • Py3k: work towards supporting Python 3 in PyPy
  • NumPyPy: work towards supporting the numpy module in PyPy
  • JIT backends: integrate tests for ARM; look at the PowerPC 64; maybe try again to write an LLVM- or GCC-based one
  • STM and STM-related topics; or the Concurrent Mark-n-Sweep GC
  • And as usual, the main side goal is to have fun in winter sports :-) We can take a day off for ski.

Exact times

The work days should be 15-21 January 2011 (Sunday-Saturday). The official plans are for people to arrive on the 14th or the 15th, and to leave on the 22nd.

Interested?

How is the STM work going, btw?

Do you have any indications yet on whether it'll be workable in an imperative VM?

STM work is slowly progressing, as you must have noticed in pypy-dev.

The Win64 port's progress is unknown, sorry.
