The talk will present several strategies and tools that will allow Python code to run as lower-level code. Will touch on JIT vs. AOT compilers, which are the task suitable to be compiled so as to perform faster than native Python? How can one annotate Python to speed up compiled Python code? Optionally (time permitting): writing Python modules in C or Fortran, and using libraries from C or Fortran in Python.
