gdata-python-scripts collects some simple scripts and examples that use the Google Spreadsheets Data APIs client libraries for Python. The main goal is to collect and publish small snippets of code that, if not completely general and ready to use, remain simple enoguh (and hopefully well documented enough) to be adapted to your own needs.
itch41 parses a file of level 3 NASDAQ stock exchange data, such as ftp://emi.nasdaq.com/ITCH/S030711-v41.txt.gz. This is mainly for demonstration purposes, lacking column domains, column constraints, data validation, timestamp calculations, stock symbol lookup for execution/cancel/delete messages, derived columns (e.g. for partitioning), and the general kinds of pre-processing one would expect from a production tick data loader.
