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.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for The
