Authors: Dr. Gabriele Lanaro, Quan Nguyen, Sakis Kasampalis
Build high performance, concurrent, and multi-threaded apps with Python using proven design patterns

Create distributed applications with clever design patterns to solve complex problems

Key Features

Set up and run distributed algorithms on a cluster using Dask and PySpark
Master skills to accurately implement concurrency in your code
Gain practical experience of Python design patterns with real-world examples

Book Description

This Learning Path shows you how to leverage the power of both native and third-party Python libraries for building robust and responsive applications. You will learn about profilers and reactive programming, concurrency and parallelism, as well as tools for making your apps quick and efficient. You will discover how to write code for parallel architectures using TensorFlow and Theano, and use a cluster of computers for large-scale computations using technologies such as Dask and PySpark. With the knowledge of how Python design patterns work, you will be able to clone objects, secure interfaces, dynamically choose algorithms, and accomplish much more in high performance computing.

By the end of this Learning Path, you will have the skills and confidence to build engaging models that quickly offer efficient solutions to your problems.

This Learning Path includes content from the following Packt products:

• Python High Performance – Second Edition by Gabriele Lanaro

• Mastering Concurrency in Python by Quan Nguyen

• Mastering Python Design Patterns by Sakis Kasampalis
