Dask for Performance: How to measure and scale Python applications for Dask

Catch up on the latest with Dask—a flexible library for parallel computing

Learn best practices for performance profiling and tuning for parallel computations in this Anaconda webinar. Lead Dask Developer Matthew Rocklin will use Dask to cover:

  • How to profile, visualize, and tune normal Python code
  • Why common approaches break down when we transition to parallel and distributed computing
  • How Dask's diagnostics, feedback, and visual dashboards can help us understand and improve performance at scale
  • Common performance pitfalls, and how to address them effectively
