Python Snakes Its Way Into HPC

Nov 17, 2010 |

Interpreted programming languages usually don’t find too many friends in high performance computing.

True believers got the opportunity to hear about the language in the HPC realm in a tutorial session on Monday and a BoF session on Wednesday. Argonne National Lab’s William Scullin, who participated in both events, talked with HPCwire about the status of Python in this space and what developers might look forward to.
