Synopsis

Fast Python for Data Science is a hands-on guide to writing Python code that can process more data, faster, and with less resources. It takes a holistic approach to Python performance, showing you how your code, libraries, and computing architecture interact and can be optimized together.





Written for experienced practitioners, Fast Python for Data Science dives right into practical solutions for improving computation and storage efficiency. You'll experiment with fun and interesting examples such as rewriting games in lower-level Cython and implementing a MapReduce framework from scratch. Finally, you'll go deep into Python GPU computing and learn how modern hardware has rehabilitated some former antipatterns and made counterintuitive ideas the most efficient way of working.



About the technology

Fast, accurate systems are vital for handling the huge datasets and complex analytical algorithms that are common in modern data science. Python programmers need to boost performance by writing faster pure-Python programs, optimizing the use of libraries, and utilizing modern multi-processor hardware; Fast Python for Data Science shows you how.
