At last year's EuroPython 2014 conference in Berlin, Marc-André Lemburg, CEO of eGenix, gave the following talk on database programming in Python. We have now turned the talk into video presentation for easy viewing and also released the presentation slides:
The Python DB-API 2.0 provides a direct interface to many popular database backends. It makes interaction with relational database very straight forward and allows tapping into the full set of features these databases provide.
This talk covers advanced database topics which are relevant in production environments such as locks, distributed transactions and transaction isolation. We also give advice on how to deal with common problems you face when working with complex database systems.
If you are interested in learning more about these advanced techniques, eGenix now offers Python project coaching and consulting services to give your project teams advice on how to implement complex database architectures in Python. Please contact our eGenix Sales Team for information.
More interesting eGenix presentations are available in the presentations and talks section of the library on our website.
