Python Memory Management and Tips Transcripts
Chapter: Efficient data structures
Lecture: What we arent covering
0:00 There are gonna be a couple of glaring omissions of what we're covering during this chapter.
0:05 We're not going to talk about functions and we're not gonna talk about classes.
0:09 Not really. Obviously we're gonna use some functions and we'll probably have some classes.
0:13 In fact, I'm certain that we will.
0:15 But we're not going to focus on some of the techniques that we can apply directly
0:18 to them to get huge, huge gains.
0:21 In fact, it's because they're so important that we're going to have a dedicated chapter
0:25 on optimizing functions and a dedicated chapter on optimizing classes.
0:30 So I want to just set the expectation that we're not gonna deal with things that
0:34 maybe address how functions use memory or how classes can be restructured to use memory better
0:40 in the Python language features.
0:42 We will talk about using classes,
0:43 but not the language features to make it better yet because those were really important
0:48 and they're coming up soon, but we have some foundational stuff to cover first.
