Talk 1: Cython for high performance computing by Niall Moran

Python is not the traditional choice for high performance computing applications. Its flexibility makes it extremely slow for certain operations. In this talk I will demonstrate how cython can be used to get dramatic speed ups with minimal effort.

Talk 2: Event Driven Programming with Twisted (and beyond) by Owen Thornton

At BetBright we’ve built our betting platform, sportsbook and casino, using Python and a heavy reliance on the Twisted framework.

This presentation covers our experiences of using Twisted to meet the challenges of high volume data and spikey customer behaviour. We’ll talk about what has worked well and what hasn’t.

We’ll finish by describing how we plan to change our technology stack to keep the best of what works and move beyond what doesn’t.
