Hackathon on HDF5 Format: Storing and Manipulating Simulation Data

October 30, 2018

Participants will learn how to use HDF5 to store column-based data, as well as simple row-based data, from Python.  You will be introduced to concepts that can be utilized inside C applications, including data spaces, the high-level interface for data, chunking, and multi-dimensional storage.  Participants will also learn how to create expandable datasets and chunked datasets.

Facilitator: Matt Turk, Assistant Professor and Research Scientist (University of Illinois, NCSA).
