PyPy and the future of the Python ecosystem

Python has a great versatile ecosystem but the competition is getting better, this talk is about how can Python keep up with these new languages and where PyPy fits into this.

Recently we've seen the rise of new technologies like Go, Node.js and Julia, those have the ability to build an ecosystem on a clean slate and thus be better than Python in some aspects. What would it take to be as good as those technologies on those aspects without loosing all the things we love about Python ? This talk will describe my perfect future where Python keeps getting better, gets to keep it's great set of libraries and where PyPy fits in that future.
