> Whenever I hear claims that Python is “too slow for X”, I wonder what’s so special about X that makes it so much more demanding than, say, serving up YouTube. YouTube is written nearly entirely in Python, and has been for many, many years. The only parts that aren’t are those that were identified as particular performance bottlenecks, such as some parts of the encoding process. These were then written in C, which is drop-in compatible with Python using ctypes.
