Optimizing Python at Scale


Cover a brief history of YouTube and Python, our frontends and our Python based templating language (Spitfire). Follow up with the challenges of optimizing for latency in a Python web server. Then talk about how we used Clif and Cython as well as other tricks to optimize key parts of our serving infrastructure to meet our latency needs. Spitfire, Clif and Cython are all open source tools available for the python community
