Wednesday, 20 May 2020

Subtitled "Practical Performant Programming for Humans", and updated for Python 3, this book by Micha Gorelick and Ian Ozsvald is a newly expanded edition showing how to locate performance bottlenecks and speed up code in high-data-volume programs. By exploring the fundamental theory behind design choices, High Performance Python aims to help developers gain a deeper understanding of Python’s implementation. The book contains concrete solutions to many issues, along with war stories from companies that use high-performance Python for social media analytics, and descriptions of machine learning being used in production.
