I will wait in the ground floor auditorium - tap the glass to get me to come and open then outside door if it doesn't open automatically (hoping that is on a timer from 9am, if not may have to ask hosts advice).
Friends, I've made a wimpy decision to continue CoFest remotely from the airport. The projected rain did not help my decision. It was so great to see you all again (or meet you for the first time) in person! A big thank you to all the organizers! See you on the gitter and on the google doc shortly.
@wleepang has a small example working via https://pypi.org/project/smart-open/ which defaults to opening files in text mode (unicode), which is perfect. Large examples seem to work too. You do however need AWS S3 credentials setup, even for a public dataset.
@peterjc This is what I was referring to, https://github.com/biojava/biojava-adam I wonder if something similar might be useful for biopython, converting from seq records to DataFrame on Spark, Parquet on disk
