Read Data from Binary Files (Feather, HDF5, ORC, Parquet)

Learn to read data from common binary file formats like Feather, HDF5, ORC, and Parquet.


Binary files are files whose contents are in binary format, which means that data is encoded as a series of sequential bytes with no inherent constraints (i.e., any sequence of bytes is possible). Unlike text files, binary files are non-text files in a format that can be read by computers but not humans.
