So you’ve gotten really good at python. Your algorithm is perfect, your data is clean … and it takes hours to run. In fact, you just realized that you could be running this in a dozen different ways by tweaking some parameters, but that would take days to run … if you get really lucky and it completes with no errors. It’s time to parallelize your code. In this class, you will learn a couple basic methods for parallelizing your code and completing your jobs in a fraction of the time. Prior experience with python is strongly recommended.
