High Performance Python tutorial v0.2 (from EuroPython 2011)

My updated High Performance Python tutorial is now available as a 55 page PDF. The goal is to take you on several journeys which show you different ways of making Python code run much faster (up to 75* on the CPU, faster with a GPU). UPDATE As of October 2014 I’ll be teaching High Performance […]

Dell E6420 with Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwahl) 64 bit

I’ve just treated myself to a quad core (8 virtual core) Dell E6420 with 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD, NVIDIA NVS 4200M GPU (with integrated Intel GPU) and the high spec screen. It is rather nice. It comes with Win 7 Pro installed (fine for some libraries I’ll need and maybe some MS Office), I’ve just […]

pyCUDA on Windows and Mac for super-fast Python math using CUDA

I’ve just started to play with pyCUDA which lets you run parallel math operations on a CUDA-compliant NVidia graphics card through Python. Update – I’ve written a High Performance Python tutorial (July 2011, 55 pages) which covers pyCUDA and other technologies, you might find it useful. CUDA stands for Compute Unified Device Architecture – it […]
