West Yorkshire Python User Group

The West Yorkshire Python User Group (WYPy) have been meeting monthly since 2007. Our meetings are free, and usually include at least one talk, as well as a trip to the pub.

We discuss our meetings on the Python Yorkshire and Humberside Google Group and you can also follow us on Twitter at @WYPython.

Fast Python Implementations: An Opinionated Review

Thursday January 14, 2016

This month Tony Simpson will be talking about Python interpreter performance.

There have been many attempts to improve on the performance of the CPython interpreter but it has proved to be difficult. The talk will examine reasons for a faster interpreter. Past and present attempts will be examined and compared. The talk will discuss technical details of JITs and the CPython interpreter but still be of interest to a general Python audience.

Date and Time

Thursday 14th January. Starting at 7.30pm.

If you want to arrive before the talk, the venue will be open from about 7.00pm. We will finish at around 8.30pm-9.00pm, and will be going to The White Swan pub afterwards.

Location

We will be meeting at the offices of The Test People:

Floor 4
Albion Court
Albion Place
Leeds
LS1 6JL

Buzz the 4th floor and someone will let you in.

Coming up

Nothing scheduled yet. Please check back soon.
