Extending Python with C and Fortran

Last week we explored profiling python code and finding the locations in your code that take up most of the CPU time.

In this weeks meetup we will look into how to extend the python interpreter with C and Fortran code. Examples are calling efficient external libraries or moving code that takes up most of your CPU time into efficient compiled functions that can be called from your python main program.

Presented by Thomas Hauser, Director of Research Computing.

Hope you can make it!
