It’s well documented that Python’s startup times are rather slow:
- When compared to other scripting languages, such as Lua
- When compared to previous verisons, such as Python 2.7
Other languages, such as Julia and Racket, are facing similar struggles.
Out of academic interest, are there any resources I could read about recent efforts to diagnose and improve startup times? I ask, because I would like to compare the problems faced by Julia and Python developers trying to address this challenge.
To be clear, I am not trying to champion one language over the other. I’m just curious about the various community efforts to resolve similar problems.
