Ivan Mesic: SQLAlchemy: Python alchemist’s secret weapon
SQLAlchemy is a Python SQL toolkit and object relational mapper. This duality brings some interesting ideas to the table. It is widely used and could be considered a de facto standard for working with relational databases in Python.
This talk will be oriented towards the novice and will explore basic concepts and ideas behind it with a lot of examples. As I work primarily with PostgreSQL database (which has recently added some nice JSON capabilities), we will also take a look at Postgres dialect for SQLAlchemy.
