Introduction to Cython

As python is an interpreted language it is much slower than compiled languages. Developer's opt for code speed options. There are many options we have like: Numpy ,Pandas, Scikit learner, but all of them make improvements within the state of python, another option in compile to Python to C.

Cython is the way to enhance the Python performance. A programming language which extends Python and enables Python to use static type system of C and C++. 

It is a compiler that translates Cython source code into efficient C or C++ source code. This source code can then be compiled into a Python extension module or a standalone executable. Almost all Python code is a valid Cython Code.

It combines Python to C. It feels like there is ease of Python with the power /speed of C/C++. Cython is situated between high-level Python & low-level C.

Cython combine Python expressiveness with C's performance, while still feeling like Python. It's better tested in real world environments. It continues to innovate to provide better performance and coverage. It is use to boost the performance of Code.

Cython has fully Python's compatibility with the unique position. It is efficient and easy to use.
