Python is an interpreted language; Python source code is translate into portable byte code. This concept in combination with other design principles of Python makes many of advantages as compared to other languages possible. As a drawback the execution speed may be considerably slower for certain kinds of applications than with compiled languages. Optimization can often increase performance of Python programs substantially.

Conspect Show list

  1. Guidelines for optimization.
    • Optimization strategies - Pystone benchmarking concept, CPU usage profiling with cProfile, memory measuring with Guppy_PE Framework. Participants are encouraged to bring their own programs for profiling to the course.
  2. Algorithms and anti-patterns
    • Examples of algorithms that are especially slow or fast in Python.
  3. The right data structure
    • Comparation of built-in data structures: lists, sets, deque and defaulddict.
    • Big-O notation will be exemplified.
  4. Caching
    • Deterministic and non-deterministic look on caching.
    • Developing decorates for caching purposes.
  5. The example - we will use a computionally demanding example and implement it first in pure Python. Then we look at some algorithmic improvements to speed up the computation.
  6. Testing speed - solution to measuring how fast a program really run in Python.
  7. Psyco - 'just-in-time-complier' (JIT), allowing to translate parts of the byte code to machine code. Example are used to show different possibilities of using Psyco.
  8. Numerical calculations with Numpy - basic possibilities of NumPy covered.
  9. Using multiple CPUS with Pyprocessing/multiprocessing.
  10. Combination of optimization strategies.
  11. Overview of extensions to Python with other languages.
