Python 3.7 will ship with a new module called dataclasses, which has been defined in PEP 557.

  • What is this module?
  • What are the problems that PEP 557 authors try to solve?
  • What was the chosen design, and why?
  • How does it compare against the tools that already exist?

This talk will deeply cover dataclasses, but also attrs, box, thingy, and others.
