About the Book

Book description

Write fast, robust, and highly reusable applications using Python’s internal optimization, state-of-the-art performance-benchmarking tools, and cutting-edge libraries

Key Features

  • Benchmark, profile, and accelerate Python programs using optimization tools
  • Scale applications to multiple processors with concurrent programming
  • Make applications robust and reusable using effective design patterns

Book Description

Python's powerful capabilities for implementing robust and efficient programs make it one of the most sought-after programming languages.

In this book, you'll explore the tools that allow you to improve performance and take your Python programs to the next level.

This book starts by examining the built-in as well as external libraries that streamline tasks in the development cycle, such as benchmarking, profiling, and optimizing. You'll then get to grips with using specialized tools such as dedicated libraries and compilers to increase your performance at number-crunching tasks, including training machine learning models.

The book covers concurrency, a major solution to making programs more efficient and scalable, and various concurrent programming techniques such as multithreading, multiprocessing, and asynchronous programming.

You'll also understand the common problems that cause undesirable behavior in concurrent programs.

Finally, you'll work with a wide range of design patterns, including creational, structural, and behavioral patterns that enable you to tackle complex design and architecture challenges, making your programs more robust and maintainable.

By the end of the book, you'll be exposed to a wide range of advanced functionalities in Python and be equipped with the practical knowledge needed to apply them to your use cases.

What you will learn

  • Write efficient numerical code with NumPy, pandas, and Xarray
  • Use Cython and Numba to achieve native performance
  • Find bottlenecks in your Python code using profilers
  • Optimize your machine learning models with JAX
  • Implement multithreaded, multiprocessing, and asynchronous programs
  • Solve common problems in concurrent programming, such as deadlocks
  • Tackle architecture challenges with design patterns

Who this book is for

This book is for intermediate to experienced Python programmers who are looking to scale up their applications in a systematic and robust manner. Programmers from a range of backgrounds will find this book useful, including software engineers, scientific programmers, and software architects.
