These are the videos of a series dedicated to introduce the main features of PyTables in a visual and easy to grasp manner. More videos will be made available with the time:
- HDF5 is for Lovers, SciPy 2012 Tutorial: a beginer’s introduction to PyTables and HDF5.
- PyTables, part I: Introduction: HDF5 file creation, the object tree, homogeneous array storage, natural naming, working with attributes.
- PyTables, part II: Working with tables: Creation of tables with multidimensional and nested columns, and how to efficiently query them.
Here are the slides of some presentations about PyTables that you may find useful:
