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

Track: Python
Date: Tuesday, July 08
Time: 8:45am - 12:15pm
Location: Salon C

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.

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.
