Jesse Jiryu Davis gives insight into what makes for a good talk submission. Good read if you intend to submit a talk. The PyCon 2016 call for proposals opens today. Do you want to speak? I want it, greedily—I'm greedy for speaking at software conferences, because I'm greedy to connect with you, and standing on stage is a sure way to start the discussion. The best stuff comes after I give the talk.

When working with multi-dimensional arrays, one important decision programmers have to make fairly early on in the project is what memory layout to use for storing the data, and how to access such data in the most efficient manner. Since computer memory is inherently linear - a one-dimensional structure, mapping multi-dimensional data on it can be done in several ways. In this article I want to examine this topic in detail, talking about the various memory layouts available and their effect on the performance of the code.
