The server world has really embraced Python in a big way. For example, the OpenStack project is a very popular Infrastructure as a Service offering, and most of it is written in Python. This makes Python a leader for Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI), Software Defined Storage (SDS) and Software Defined Networking (SDN).
The core components of the Internet get updated constantly. Every time the source changes, the health and performance can change. A single source code change can fail to build, can break compatibility with existing code and can change the performance anywhere from a fraction of a percent up to 10% or more on major customer workloads. We're trying to read the pulse of our core components (Python,...
In interpreted languages, it just takes longer to get stuff done - I earlier gave the example where the Python source code a = b + c would result in a BINARY_ADD byte code which takes 78 machine instructions to do the add, but it's a single native ADD instruction if run in compiled language like C or C++. How can we speed this up? Or as the performance expert would say, how do I decrease...
Cython* is a superset of Python* that additionally supports C functions and C types on variable and class attributes. Cython generates C extension modules, which can be used by the main Python program using the import statement.
