Pyjion is a project to replace the core execution loop of CPython by transpiling CPython bytecode to ECMA CIL and then using the .NET 5 CLR to compile that into machine code. It then executes the machine-code compiled JIT frames at runtime instead of using the native execution loop of CPython.
Guido van Rossum on Twitter: "I decided that retirement was boring and have joined the Developer Division at Microsoft. To do what? Too many options to say! But it’ll make using Python better for sure (and not just on Windows :-). There’s lots of open source here. Watch this space." / Twitter
I’m wondering if they still asked you to submit a resume/cv
Yes they did, and I got interviewed by Kevin Scott and Anders Hejlsberg (and others). How cool is that. :-) (They also asked for my diploma from University?!)
