Apache Arrow is a multi-language toolbox for accelerated data interchange and in-memory processing, and is becoming the de facto standard for tabular data. This talk will give an overview of the recent developments both in Apache Arrow itself as how it is being adopted in the PyData ecosystem (and beyond) and can improve your day-to-day data analytics workflows.
