Deconstructing Feather

by Bill Lattner

Published August 27, 2016 in Programming

Feather, Avro, Parquet, Arrow... all these new file formats, what's wrong with good old CSVs? In this talk, we will cover why CSV files are not always the optimal storage format for tabular data and what optimizations each of these formats make. We will do a deep dive on Feather, a cross-language format created by Wes McKinney and Hadley Wickham.
