Profiling and optimising Python code

Profiling and optimising your Python code

Abstract of the talk

You use Python day-in and day-out and you must have seen or heard thousands of folks complaining about Python being slow. To some extent it's true, but that doesn't mean people don't use it. There are 2 ways to solve a problem, the easy way or the Pythonic way.

In this talk, we'll go over how you can profile your python code, optimise your python code to be more efficient while adhering to the Zen of Python.

  1. Briefly talk about Python language and parts that contribute to the longer execution time [5-7 mins]
  2. What is Profiling and how it helps to recognise the performance of your code [7 mins]
  3. Optimising your python code [10 mins]
  4. QnA [5 mins]

Let's do things the Pythonic way

P.S.> This talk is more towards Beginners but I have selected the Target Audience as Intermediate considering a lot of Pythonistas may also be curious to learn more about this.
