h5pydantic, from a Synchrotron through Python to HDF5

Saturday 2:10 PM–2:40 PM in Hall C

h5pydantic is a Pydantic based library used to describe the layout of HDF5 files using Python models, in a similar way to how SQLAlchemy models are used to describe the layout of an SQL database. HDF5 files are structured binary files, designed to store science and mathematical data.

See this talk and many more by getting your ticket to PyCon AU now!

I want a ticket!

This talk will cover: * Providing scientific software support when you're not an expert in the scientific field. * Python dataclasses, and the related Pydantic library. * HDF5 files, what are they, when should they be used. * How to build on top of Pydantic, and the design decisions that you'll have to make. * How to test data transformation code automatically.
