Numba, a JIT compiler for fast numerical code


This talk will be a general introduction to Numba. Numba is a just­-in-­time Python compiler that allows you to speed up numerical algorithms for which fast linear algebra (i.e. Numpy array operations) is not enough. It has backends for the CPU and for CUDA GPUs.

Expected audience: Python programmers / scientists who have an interest in speeding up numerical routines. Also, people who are curious about attempts at high-­performance Python.
