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!

    To follow along with my tutorial tomorrow you should have a c compler and a fortran compiler installed on your computer.

    For Windows you could use: www.mingw.org
    On the Mac you could install gcc and gfortran using MacPorts: www.macports.org

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
