Before I started my new job, I thought of SQLAlchemy as "that ORM people use with Flask." Well, it is that - and more! With this talk, I want to give the audience a taste of SQLAlchemy's philosophy and capability.
1) Picking the right abstraction: SQLAlchemy's ORM and Core layers.
2) Transaction management: The Unit of Work pattern (SQLAlchemy) vs. the Active Record pattern (Django models, Rails ActiveRecord).
3) In the wild: code samples plus practical concerns like migrations.
