Big Data and Python: Utilizing Python for Large-scale Datasets

· Big Data Zone
This recent video from NewCircle Training discusses the use of Python for querying mass quantities of data. Despite the slow speed of Python, at least compared to languages like C++, AdRoll demonstrates how it can perform very efficiently even with large-scale datasets.

Ville Tuulos, Principle Engineer at AdRoll, a company producing tons of big data, demonstrates how AdRoll uses Python to squeeze every bit of performance out of a single high-end server. They manage it with Numba, a new NumPy aware dynamic Python compiler based on LLVM, and thanks to Python, the system can provide a very expressive and developer-friendly API. Find out more in this informative talk from the San Francisco Python Meetup Group.
