The talk gives an introduction to the concepts used in the Python Database API and relational databases in general.
Connection, cursors and transactions are explained, and their use in a typical Python database application is demonstrated. The talk also touches upon advanced database programming techniques and discusses best practices.
If you're looking for a DB-API compatible Python interface, please have a look at our database products mxODBC and mxODBC Connect.
They implement a Python DB-API 2.0 compatible interface, including a
number of important extensions such as ODBC catalog methods for easy
introspection of the database schema.
The above 58-minute talk was given the EuroPython conference 2011 in Florence, Italy, by Marc-André Lemburg, CEO of eGenix.com.
