Event Description
This workshop will introduce participants to high performance Python using techniques such as Just In Time (JIT) compilation through Numba. We will look at several problems, and develop solutions using several different techniques, and compare the performance gained by doing so with the (potential) loss in expressivity and clarity.

Workshop format: Presentation with hands-on exercises.

Target audience: Those with Python experience looking to improve the performance of their code.

Knowledge prerequisites: Some experience with Python is required.

Hardware/software prerequisites: For this workshop, users must have an account on our Adroit cluster, and they should confirm that they can SSH into Adroit at least a few hours beforehand. Details on all of the above can be found in this guide: https://bit.ly/3QER9Sv

Learning objectives: Participants will come away with the ability to accelerate their Python code using Numba.
