Discover clean ways to write code that will run on bothPython2 and 3.This book is tutorial-oriented with detailed examples of how to convert existingPython2-compatible code to code that willrun reliably on bothPython2 and 3.
Although Python 3 is considered the future of Python, Python 2.x will be maintained for several more years, alongside Python 3, which is not backwards compatible. For those who need to support both versions, this book guides you through the process.
