How Import Works by Brett Cannon

How Import Works by Brett Cannon

This talk will go over how the simple from sys import version turns out to be slightly complicated. The details of imports -- from how the import statement is interpreted to deciding what object to return -- will be discussed. While the talk will discuss things from the perspective of Python 3.3 (and thus importlib), the overall semantics will (mostly) apply to older versions of Python.
