HDF5 Tutorial: Constructing a Simple Terminal VOL Connector
This two-hour tutorial will cover the basics needed to construct a simple terminal Virtual Object Layer (VOL) connector. The tutorial will focus on the mapping of HDF5 API calls to alternative storage and setting up VOL fields and callbacks to support it. At the end of the tutorial, participants should be able to get started writing their own terminal VOL connectors. Familiarity with the HDF5 API, C programming and some basic knowledge of the VOL architecture will be helpful.
The tutorial will be held virtually on December 10, 2021. More information about the agenda and registration (required) can be found here.
