The Empty Class

When working with records or data transfer objects (DTO), all that you need is a bunch of data members grouped together into a class. In Python, that can be easily achieved using an empty class definition:

class Element:
'''Represents an element in the periodic table.'''
na = Element()
na.atomic_number = 11
na.name = 'Sodium'
print(f'Atomic Number: {na.atomic_number}; Name: {na.name}')
