Python Abstract Syntax

This talk was given to the Cleveland Python Users Group in March 2009.

The talk covers the Abstract Syntax features in Python from their introduction in 2.3 all the way through the current state of AST in 2.6 and 3.0. This is a high-level overview with a couple of interesting use cases for the AST module. The talk covers the module itself and the underlying techniques that are used to generate the AST tree including a short tour of the Python parser.
