Episode #49: Microsoft's JIT-based Python Project: Pyjion

Published Tues, Mar 8, 2016, recorded Wed, Feb 3, 2016.


This episode you'll learn about a project that has the potential to unlock massive innovation around how CPython understands and executes code. And it's coming from what many of you may consider an unlikely source: Microsoft and the recently open-sourced, cross-platform .NET Core runtime.

You'll meet Brett Cannon who works on Microsoft's Azure Data group. Along with Dino Viehland, he is working on a new initiative called Pyjion (pronounced Pigeon) P-y-j-i-on, a JIT framework that can become part of CPython itself paving the way for many new just-in-time compilation initiatives in the future.
