Python and MySQL

Ted Leung (The Walt Disney Company)
LAMP
Location: Ballroom D

The adoption of dynamic languages like PHP, Ruby, and Python is increasing. PHP and Ruby are well known for their use in the LAMP stack, but Python has received less attention. Web frameworks like Django and Turbogears are causing developers to give Python a look for their web application development needs.

This talk will be a code level survey of ways to access MySQL from Python. I’ll cover the major Python libraries and frameworks for database access, including the Python DB-API/MySQLdb module, SQLAlchemy/Elixir, SQLObject and Django’s ORM facilities.
