[Tutorial] Supercharging Data Validation in Python

A session at PAPIs '15

Thursday 6th August, 2015

11:40am to 12:20pm (EST)

The tutorial shows a smarter process for cleaning and ingestion of dirty data. PySemantic module validates and cleans data based on human-readable rules and constraints, significantly simplifying data ingest. It provides a simple schema for defining constraints on a dataset, which is enforced before and during the ingestion of the data. Thus, the data read by a program is guaranteed to conform to certain restrictions, which saves a lot of repetitive effort. The process makes data cleaning efficient, and is a scalable system for data ingest.
