I have followed the development of PyPy since 2004 and played with various releases to see what the PyPy team had achieved. It wasn't until the release of PyPy 1.18 that I actually ran some existing production python code under it. The perceived performance improvement of this exercise inspired me to implement a more scientific method for comparing the runtime performance of CPython and PyPy running various Python production code sets that we use in the company I work for. This presentation will discuss the results of this comparison and the positives and negatives with utilising PyPy in production.
