Essential SQLAlchemyby Rick Copeland
Synopses & Reviews
Essential SQLAlchemy introduces a high-level open-source code library that makes it easier for Python programmers to access relational databases such as Oracle, DB2, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite. SQLAlchemy has become increasingly popular since its release, but it still lacks good offline documentation. This practical book fills the gap, and because a developer wrote it, you get an objective look at SQLAlchemy's tools rather than an advocate's description of all the "cool" features.
In addition, you'll learn how and when to use other extensions to SQLAlchemy, including AssociationProxy, OrderingList, and more.
Book News Annotation:
For Python programmers, this guide describes how the SQLAlchemy open source code library can map objects to database tables without substantially changing the Python code. The library bridges the gap between relational databases and traditional object-oriented programming. The book covers the 0.4 release series and installation, engines, running queries and updates, building an object mapper, querying and updating, and extensions. Intermediate to advanced Python skills are assumed, as is moderate exposure to SQL databases. Copeland is a software engineer with a retail analytics firm.
