Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Your Python code may run correctly, but you need it to run faster. By exploring the fundamental theory behind design choices, the updated edition of this practical guide, expanded and enhanced for Python 3, helps you gain a deeper understanding of Python's implementation. You'll learn how to locate performance bottlenecks and significantly speed up your code in high-data-volume programs.

How can you take advantage of multicore architectures or clusters? Or build a system that can scale up and down without losing reliability? Experienced Python programmers and students alike will learn concrete solutions to these and other issues, along with war stories from companies that use high-performance Python for social media analytics, productionized machine learning, and other situations.

  • Get a better grasp of NumPy, Cython, and profilers
  • Learn how Python abstracts the underlying computer architecture
  • Understand performant pandas
  • Use profiling to find bottlenecks in CPU time and memory usage
  • Write efficient programs by choosing appropriate data structures
  • Speed up matrix, vector, and even tensor computations
  • Use tools to compile Python down to machine code, on CPUs and GPUs
  • Manage multiple I/O and computational operations Read More chevron_right

   Good book
I learn a lot and half way through the book. Before I wrote Python, I was primarily an expert C++ programmer. Ironically, I have ordered a more fundamental Book of Python and it remains in the mail, but I am still able to find this book very understandable.
