High performance computing with Python online course

By WebmasterNews
Free online course by PRACE: Python in High Performance Computing

The Python programming language is popular in scientific computing because of the benefits it offers for fast code development. The performance of pure Python programs is often suboptimal, but there are ways to make them faster and more efficient.

On this course, you’ll find out how to identify performance bottlenecks, perform numerical computations efficiently, and extend Python with compiled code. You’ll learn various ways to optimise and parallelise Python programs, particularly in the context of scientific and high performance computing.

Who is the course for?

The course is designed for Python programmers who want to speed up their codes. You should be familiar with the basics of the Python programming language.
