Description

Burkhard Kloss - Performant Python [EuroPython 2016] [18 July 2016] [Bilbao, Euskadi, Spain] (https://ep2016.europython.eu//conference/talks/performant-python)

Python is a great language. Easy to learn, friendly to use, widely used.

It is not, however, renowned for being fast. In a lot of situations that does not matter. Sometimes it really does. This talk will introduce you to some tools and techniques for making sure your Python code becomes fast enough – without turning into a maintenance nightmare. Warning: may contain small bits of other languages.


Python is a great language. Easy to learn, friendly to use, widely used.

It is not, however, renowned for being fast. In a lot of situations that does not matter. Sometimes it really does. This talk will introduce you to some tools and techniques for making sure your Python code becomes fast enough – without turning into a maintenance nightmare. Fast code does not have to be unreadable - and when you're writing Python, it really pays of to think "pythonically".

That does mean using the included batteries, and utilising the ecosystem of tools around the language, too.
