A work-in-progress guide to features of Python 3 that are useful for scientists.
The goal of this document is to convince working scientists who use python for day-to-day work to transition from Python 2.7 to Python 3.
Things we explicitly want to avoid:
- Trashing Python 2.7
- Code shaming
Strategies we want to employ:
- Motivate with cool new features
- Provide tools/workflows/suggestions to ease the transition
