  • Hi Matt,

    It says in the Preface of the book:
    ----
    This book was written for practicing Python programmers who want to become proficient in Python 3. If you know Python 2 but are willing to migrate to Python 3.4 or later, you should be fine. At this writing the majority of professional Python programmers are using Python 2, so I took special care to highlight Python 3 features that may be new to that audience.

    However, Fluent Python is about making the most of Python 3.4, and I do not spell out the fixes needed to make the code work in earlier versions. Most examples should run in Python 2.7 with little or no changes, but in some cases backporting would require significant rewriting.

    I hope that helps,
