PyPy Tutorial - NumPy?


We're very excited for our upcoming tutorial at PyCon, and we can't wait to see you there. As we prepare our material, we're interested in what material will be most interesting and helpful to you, so we're going to have a lot of questions for you. Right now we'd like to know, are you interested in hearing about NumPy for PyPy? As you may know PyPy is working on it's own implementation of NumPy, with rapidly increasing compatibility, and performance. However, it does have a pretty different performance profile from CPython's NumPy. If you're interested in hearing about this in our tutorial, please let us know.

We also plan on going through an open source application and demonstrating some performance analysis and optimization on it. If you could give us a list of a few open source application you'd like to see us take a look at, and we'll choose the most popular one.

Please write back to us at and

Thanks, Alex Gaynor, Maciej Fijalkowski, Armin Rigo

P.s. - Be sure you've downloaded and installed PyPy!
