Slow Python: Myth or Curse
There is quite a common sense that Python, being interpreted language, is inherently slow. In this talk, I’ll explain when and why Python can be slow, and how to make it faster, including simple compilation of the Python code into native one.
Nikolay Karelin works with Python since 2007. He is working in VPIphotonics, which develops software for simulation of fiber-optics systems. Nikolay’s principal responsibility is development and support of numerical processing algorithms (both with Python implementation, and also on C/C++ including NVIDIA CUDA), parallel algorithms and interaction between different parts of complex software. He holds Ph.D. degree in physics (optics).
