Our non-profit mission is to provide the means to organize and store large complex data to be effectively and efficiently accessible anywhere and indefinitely.

People around the world rely on open source HDF software and use it to solve some of the most challenging data management problems.


Call the Doctor – Weekly HDF Clinic

Join us for our weekly, unscripted, live events each Tuesday at 12:20 p.m. Central time! The HDF Group’s experts will present some information on their work, answer attendee questions and, for example, go over the previous week’s HDF Forum posts. The HDF Clinics are free sessions intended to help users tackle real-world HDF problems from a common cold to severe headaches and offer relief where that’s possible. As time permits, we will include how-tos, offer advice on tool usage, review your code samples, teach you survival in the documentation jungle, and discuss what’s new or just around the corner in the land of HDF.

  • First Tuesday of each month – Dana Robinson, Director of Software Engineering
  • Second Tuesday of each month – John Readey, Cloud services, HSDS Principal Architect
  • Third Tuesday of each month – Aleksandar Jelenak – Python, h5py contributor
  • Fourth Tuesday of each month – Scot Breitenfeld – HPC, Fortran
  • Fifth Tuesday (when it happens) – Gerd Heber, Executive Director

As always, feel free to bring any HDF-related question to the session or put it in the Google doc ahead of time. This is a great chance to get in front of an engineer who may have the expertise you need for your project, for free.
