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.
Ted Leung is a Principal Engineer at Sun Microsystems, where he is working on Dynamic Languages, and is currently focused on Python.
He is a member of the Apache Software Foundation, where he was a founding member of the Apache XML project. In addition to being one of the original developers of the Xerces-J XML parser, Ted is a member of the Apache Labs PMC, the Incubator PMC and has helped shepherd several projects through the ASF incubation process.
Ted has also participated in the Chandler project at the Open Source Applications Foundation, where he worked on the Chandler Desktop client, the Chandler Server, and open source/community management issues.
