SQl Alchemy vs Django ORM

Josh will compare 2 of the most popular ways of accessing a database in Python, SQL Alchemy and the Django ORM (Object-Relation Mapping). SQL Alchemy is generally thought of as more powerful and flexible, while Django is more accessible. The talk will compare the 2 to try to demystify what they mean and what makes them unique.



Location Information

The map link above for our location is not sufficient, so I have a more detailed and annotated map that should be referenced:

map to Bausch and Lomb Hall at the University of Rochester

(parking and walking directions)

The meeting will be in Bausch and Lomb Hall, room 407.

• Find the elevator, go to the 4th floor and exit to your right.

• At the end of the hall, make another right.

• Walk to the very end of the hall past the fire doors.

• You are now at Room 407.

• Network Access Internet access is readily available.

    I really enjoy the talks and the format we've had, but I'm trying to think of some things that would help to engage everyone in every meeting.

    * Are people interested in choosing topics during meetings for lightning talks in the *next* meeting and getting volunteers to prepare them? If the topic for the present meeting doesn't interest you, you can try to add something you like for the next meeting.

    * It's very important to have some plan and structure, or people can quickly fall into useless chatter, and after a few meetings like that people stop showing up. With that in mind, maybe we could set aside a little brainstorming time during each meeting. People could talk about something of personal interest, plan a workshop, even ask for help with some specific coding problem they're having.

    * During each meeting, we could plan together the breadth and depth of the talk(s) for the next meeting.

    If you like these ideas or have other general ideas, we should start a new thread.

    This is my first time rocpy event. I think these lecture series are great, but this one was a bit on the boring side, sorry Josh. My main reason was the lecturer dove into the fine details of sql alchemy. I didnt really understand what sqlalchemy was in comparison to django. It would be great if majority of the lecture was more of a side by side comparison so I can be more aware of how to choose between sqlalchemy or django.

      Hey Richard, yes thank you Josh for a great talk. I know sometimes most people forget to provide feedback, I hope I was helpful.
      I am personally interested in weekend workshops.

      Kennedy, sorry I didn't reply sooner, and I also apologize for diving too far into the minutia of the discussion. I really had planned on it being a more high level side by side comparison. I promise that I'll attempt this topic again, and now that I have this talk behind me it should be easier to do what you are looking for and what I had intended.
