I hope the downvotes are not due to people thinking you can actually write high performance applications in Python.


Sadly true. Python is great for scripting, but "high performance Python" is frequently a challenge better suited to other tools.


"High performance Python" is usually done by "offloading literally everything to native extensions" :D
