Did you know that it only takes 11 pieces of syntax and some special functions to implement all the rest of the syntax of Python 3.8? It turns out you can take something like + and unravel it into Python code, letting you implement what Python does for a certain piece of syntax all on your own!

This talk will cover what the minimum bits of Python syntax are needed to implement all the other pieces of syntax that Python supports. We will also cover how various pieces of syntax unravel into code to help you have a better understanding of how Python actually works.
