Louisville, KY /

DerbyPy Monthly Meetup

The Pointe - LVL1 1205 E. Washington St. , Louisville, KY (map)

Python is growing in popularity in the realm of data science. Many data scientists are learning how to wield data with NumPy and Pandas, but another tool that should be in every data scientist's Python tool belt is SQLAlchemy. Not a data scientist? No problem. SQLAlchemy is a great tool for anyone who works with databases and likes Python.

The SQLAlchemy ORM allows you to interact with databases of various kinds using only Python objects. With the SQLAlchemy ORM you can define your database model, create flexible and reusable queries, and write unit tests for your data processes.

At our next DerbyPy meetup Bill Adams will give a brief introduction to the SQLAlchemy ORM. This will be an intermediate tutorial that assumes a working knowledge of SQL. Come join us to learn how to add this useful library to your Python toolkit.


Each meeting will generally consist of:

• Food & chit-chat

• A presentation and discussion on some Python related topic. This may sometimes include hands-on opportunities, so bring a laptop if possible.

• An opportunity for other "lightning talks" and general discussion of cool or interesting things happening in the Python world.
