Exploring the New Features of Python 3.12

Python 3.12 is here! Our regular guests, Geir Arne Hjelle and Christopher Trudeau, return to discuss the new version. Geir Arne coordinated a series of preview articles with several members of the Real Python team this year, and his showcase tutorial, “Python 3.12: Cool New Features for You to Try,” came out on October 2. Christopher’s video course was posted the next day, covering the topics from the article with visual examples of Python 3.12 in action.

Geir Arne and Christopher collaborated to create code examples of the new features. We discuss better error messaging, more intuitive f-strings, subinterpreters, the Linux perf profiler, improved typing syntax, and more.

We dig into the updates and offer advice on incorporating them into your projects. We also consider when you should start running Python 3.12.
