Professional Services

I am an independent consultant and developer with more than 15 years of experience in Python and C programming languages, and almost 25 years leveraging compression techniques for accelerating I/O. With customer needs in mind I can apply my experience to help determining the best options for handling and analyzing big datasets in the most efficient way.

As you may know, I am the main author of PyTables, bcolz as well as the ultra-fast Blosc compressor that has become the basis for some novel, innovative technological in the I/O space. In particular, the bcolz project provides a highly efficient way to perform out-of-core queries and computations on column stored datasets that has become particularly interesting for the analysis of medium/large-sized time-series datasets.

Whay I offer:

  • Development services on existing or new packages in the Blosc ecosystem (including PyTables and bcolz).
  • Development services for custom software that is for doing optimal I/O (either using Blosc/PyTables/bcolz or not).
  • Consulting services on better leveraging the Blosc ecosystem in your own setups.
