Title: Parrot VM 
by Allison Randal 

The Parrot virtual machine hit 1.0 in March of this year, with 
a second production release (1.4) in July. A virtual machine 
like no other, Parrot targets dynamic languages like Python. It 
hosts a powerful suite of compiler tools tailored to dynamic 
languages and a next generation regular expression engine. This 
talk explores Pynie, an implementation of Python 3 on Parrot, 
with a brief explanation of the overall architecture of Parrot.
