Blog post: Converting CSV to parquet in Clojure

Following some conversations we had at the conj we wrote a short article about using Clojure to convert CSV into parquet files.

Did you wrap the Java thing, or did you implement it from scratch?

Is the source code published?

Great questions!

The heavy lifting is done by our library for tabular data processing (TMD)

hth - keep the good questions coming!

Thanks for looking into it.
