Mark Kohler
Recorded: March 16, 2013Language: English

Cython and SWIG are excellent, and yet very different tools for using C libraries from Python. The goal of this talk is to introduce both tools, discuss their strengths, their weaknesses, and the situations that clearly favor one tool over the other.

Designing Embedded Systems with Linux and Python
PyCon US 2012
Mark Kohler
Recorded: March 10, 2012Language: English

The continual decrease in the cost of computer hardware is allowing more embedded systems to be built with Linux and Python, instead of the traditional approach of a real-time operating system and C. This talk reviews the differences between those approaches and describes problems, solutions, and tools that can be used when building embedded systems with Python.
