Discussion on: Have you had to make your Python code run fast?

The one performance issue I had to deal with wasn't with Python itself, but with having to await the results of many database queries, and therefore needing to have multiple ones running at a time.

I think it's often a matter of picking the right tool for the job. In web development, it rarely seems like the language is the most important bottleneck.

Of course, it's a factor, but other things take precedence.

In other areas of software, the language's performance winds up playing a bigger role. Don't write an OS in Python!!
