Vishal Kanaujia and I presented a talk on ‘Diving into Byte-code optimization in Python’ at SciPy conference held at IIT Bombay from 04-07 Dec 11.

Agenda of the talk:

  • Python Virtual Machine: internals
  • Reverse engineering: Python byte code (“pyc” files)
    • Exploring Python dis-assembler for pyc
  • Optimizing python byte code for time-efficiency
    • Peephole optimization
    • Tweaking the Python VM
  • Does PyPy helps?
