6:45pm - How to choose a database: Introduction to transactions by Jim Fulton

This talk will provide an introduction to transactions, presenting
their benefits for error handling and concurrency control, with
examples. Transactions do incur some cost and cases for
non-transactional databases will be presented as well.

We'll look at examples of leveraging transactions in Python, in
stand-alone Python code and in web frameworks.
