Today we use Python to identify prime numbers. This is important in cryptography and number theory. While it’s simple to make the function work, it’s hard to make it FAST. We’ll profile the function and look at several ways to improve the speed of our algorithm.

Course Description

Our Python Tutorials will help you learn Python quickly and thoroughly. We start with "Hello World" and then move on to data structures (sets, lists, tuples and dictionaries). Next we'll cover classes, and give a variety of in-depth examples and applications.
