This talk will go over what's new in Python 3.8, with emphasis on assignment expressions as well as the controversial talks that led Guido to quit his position as BDFL

No one expected Guido to quit as Python BDLF, not to mention over a simple useful feature such as assignment expressions... In this talk I will discuss the new useful Python features and explain them with examples. In addition, the special case of assignment expressions will be reviewed both as a feature and what happened during the PEP discussion and what eventually caused Guido to quit his position as BDFL. Last, a few words about the new era of Python with no BDFL.
