PyTables Tutorials [ID:178]
a series of video-tutorials by The Carabos crew
PyTables is a hierarchically-organized database designed to handle massive amounts of data in a simple, but highly efficient way. You can download PyTables and use it totally for free (since it is released under the BSD license). PyTables is developed and supported by Carabos.
PyTables has been designed to take advantage of the excellent HDF5 and NumPy libraries. It offers an object-oriented interface which, in combination with C extensions for the most critical fragments of code, results in a very fast, yet extremely easy to use tool for storing and retrieving large amounts of information.
These are the videos of a series dedicated to introduce the main features of PyTables in a visual and easy to grasp manner. The first video is an introduction which covers HDF5 file creation, the object tree, homogeneous array storage, natural naming and working with attributes.
