Storing & Exchanging Data with Python

Posted on

Mike Kittridge and I ran a talk last week for the Christchurch Python meetup that covered a large assortment of ways that Python programs can store data and exchange data with other programs. We covered the ins and outs of binary files, text files, buffering, text encoding, newline ending, mmap, pickle, JSON and friends, MessagePack, Protobuf, tabular data formats, multi-dimensional data formats and key-value stores. It was quite the tour!
