PyPy

PyPy is a fast, compliant alternative implementation of the Python language (2.7.10 and 3.3.5). It has several advantages and distinct features:
– Speed: thanks to its Just-in-Time compiler, Python programs often run faster on PyPy. (What is a JIT compiler?)
“If you want your code to run faster, you should probably just use PyPy.” — Guido van Rossum (creator of Python)
– Memory usage: memory-hungry Python programs (several hundreds of MBs or more) might end up taking less space than they do in CPython.
– Compatibility: PyPy is highly compatible with existing python code. It supports cffi and can run popular python libraries like twisted and django.
– Stackless: PyPy comes by default with support for stackless mode, providing micro-threads for massive concurrency.
– As well as other features.
