Python and Relational Databases, Featuring MySQL
Andy Dustman, Terry College of Business, University of Georgia

Track: Python
Date: Monday, July 22
Time: 1:45pm - 5:15pm
Location: Marina III

This tutorial focuses on the standard DB-API and how to use it to interact with relational databases. Examples center on MySQL, a popular free RDBMS, but will be generally applicable to other RDBMS, such as PostgreSQL, Oracle, Informix, and DB2.

Tabular data is frequently stored in relational database management systems (RDBMS) and accessed using Standard Query Language (SQL). Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming language, often used as "glue" to combine other existing systems together. A standard database API has been established for Python, which provides a common interface to many relational databases.
