This talk will introduce how itools.csv provides a high-level API to handle CSV files. From the loading of a simple CSV file to the serialisation of a complex object, we will demonstrate automatic type marshalling, rows handling, and the search engine. We will address underlying concepts, such as datatypes encoding and decoding, indexing, and querying by using a simple syntax. Extending the API will also be illustrated. Change your point of view on CSV!
