30 August 2014 - 12:06Slides for High Performance Python tutorial at EuroSciPy2014 + Book signing!

Yesterday I taught an excerpt of my 2 day High Performance Python tutorial as a 1.5 hour hands-on lesson at EuroSciPy 2014 in Cambridge with 70 students:

We covered profiling (down to line-by-line CPU & memory usage), Cython (pure-py and OpenMP with numpy), Pythran, PyPy and Numba. This is an abridged set of slides from my 2 day tutorial, take a look at those details for the upcoming courses (including an intro to data science) we’re running in October.

I’ll add the video in here once it is released, the slides are below.

I also got to do a book-signing for our High Performance Python book (co-authored with Micha Gorelick), O’Reilly sent us 20 galley copies to give away. The finished printed book will be available via O’Reilly and Amazon in the next few weeks.

If you want to hear about our future courses then join our low-volume training announce list. I have a short (no-signup) survey about training needs for Pythonistas in data science, please fill that in to help me figure out what we should be teaching.

I also have a further survey on how companies are using (or not using!) data science, I’ll be using the results of this when I keynote at PyConIreland in October, your input will be very useful.

Here are the slides (License: CC By NonCommercial), there’s also source on github:
