Building A Python Code Completer at PyCon US 2022

Almost all of Anvil went to PyCon US in Salt Lake City this past April, and we had a blast. To round off the trip, we were able to watch Meredydd give his first in-person talk at a US PyCon - and it was awesome. Even better, the recordings are now out, so you can see it for yourselves!

In his talk, Meredydd teaches us how Python parses and compiles code, what an AST is, and how we can use this knowledge to work out what a programmer might type next. And, to prove it’s not that complicated, he builds a little code completer, live on stage, in about five minutes.
