Working With Apache Parquet

💡 This is a Data Dispatch post.

Working with Apache Parquet:

I’ve been doing some reading around open table formats, and came across this article (on the Daft blog) about Parquet format and it’s relation to Arrow.

It’s a quick read, and gives a nice overview of Parquet, mentioning some specifics if you want to dig further. Most surprising for me was learning that there are a number of new features in Parquet, but support for them is sadly limited—so you end up having to restrict to older versions for compatibility purposes.
