DuckDB and PyArrow

I previously link parked DuckDB as an embedded, high speed, OLAP engine. Gerard Bentley has some nice examples of using DuckDB, Arrow, and Python. Even though the combo isn’t definitively better than Pandas and Arrow, I like how seamless the integration between DuckDB and Arrow data appears. Simply referencing a Python variable from a DuckDB query is a neat trick. Wonder how that’s implemented under the covers.
