Speeding up Python code has traditionally been achieved by writing C/C++ — an alien world for most Python users. Today, you can write high performance code in Julia instead, which is much much easier for Python users. This tutorial will give you hands-on experience writing a Python library that incorporates Julia for performance optimization.
