2 June 2014 - 20:02New High Performance Python chapters online & teaching a 2 day course on HPC
The last month has been crazy busy, not least because I got to run my first High Performance Python 2 day tutorial at a university. I was out in Aalborg University teaching a PhD group, we covered four blocks:
- Profiling (CPU and RAM)
- Compilers and JITs
- Multi-core and distributed
- Using less RAM, storage systems and lessons
Here’s a picture of my class, it all went rather swimmingly. I plan to run the same class in London in the coming months (details to follow):
On the same note we pushed some more chapters for our High Performance Python book on to O’Reilly’s build system a week back, we now have:
- Performant Python
- Tuples and Dictionaries
- Iterators and Generators
- Matrices with numpy
- Compiling and JITs
More chapters will go live in a couple of weeks, we’re in the final editing phase now.
Don’t forget that PyDataBerlin is coming up in a couple of months, it runs during EuroPython. If you’re out for EuroPython then it makes a lot of sense to go to PyDataBerlin too
