All your Database are Belong to Us: A bottom up, interactive learning spree

  • Feb 27, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's learn the basics of what a database is and how to use it, then learn the magic of an ORM. If we have time/interest, we'll tackle the more difficult topics of migrations, backups, sharding, and replication.

This meetup is open to both PyLadies and PyGents!

Our Speaker/Host: Jessica Stanton works for Uber as a software engineer and infranaut, as well as one of the first women to start PyLadies in Los Angeles!

You may wish to bring a laptop if you want to play along, otherwise you can just listen and follow. There will be a repo that will have instructions that mimics the talk. There will also be a video recording with slides, all of which will be posted after the event.

7pm: Doors Open
7:30pm-ish: Talk starts
10pm: Loose end-time but feel free to hang around and talk about DBs!

Pizza, snacks, and drinks will be provided! A *huge* thank you to Uber for hosting PyLadiesSF!

    Hi All! I'm super excited to see y'all tonight. As promised (though a bit late due to the meetup outage) here is the repo to play with: https://github.com/tiny-mouse/daterbasers Please let me know if you have trouble accessing it (I might have messed up the public-ing) or if you need help. Also, you can show up at 7 sharp for hands-on help if need be.

    Double checking my setup for tomorrow. It looks like I have python 2.7 installed, which has sqlite installed (I think), and I have git and pip, as well as virtualenvs installed (thank you Lynn & DataViz workshop!). Have I packed everything needed for tomorrow's magical mystery ORM tour?

    1 · February 26, 2014

    • Jessica

      That should be it! If you want to double check that you have sqlite installed, try running "sqlite3 test.db" in a terminal. If you end up seeing something like the following then you're good to go (CTRL-D to exit)!

      SQLite version[masked]:35:41
      Enter ".help" for instructions
      Enter SQL statements terminated with a ";"
      sqlite>

      Check and check, ready to go! Thanks so much for the guidance!

    Hi! If we plan to bring a laptop to play along, is there a particular setup/install configuration we should prep the laptop before the meeting? & thanks in advance for organizing such a great resource!

      Formsie! You're giving away all my secrets! Kidding.

    Crud, I'm very sorry to miss this, but I'll definitely want to watch the recording when it's available.

    Hello! Looking forward to Thursday :) Are there any recommended tutorials we should checkout beforehand? Thanks for putting this together.

    February 24, 2014

    • Jessica

      Hey! The talk will start with the very basics of dbs and progress from there. If you want to play along, the following are the lists of things to have installed or things to know:

      - pip: http://www.pip-instal...­
      - How to git clone: https://help.github.co...­


      If there is a topic you don't understand or need help with, please let me know.

      Missed one: - Basic bash (aka cd, mkdir etc) to get into the repo directory

    Hi All! Thursday midday I will post the github url of the playground project I'm polishing up right now. In it, there will be a set of instructions to set up the things you'll need to actually play around. The main thing you'll want just so you can play around during the preso is sqlite. If you have os x it should be already installed. Here is the link if not: http://www.sqlite.org/ I'm also starting the talk 30 minutes after doors open, so if you need some help, please arrive promptly at 7 to give me enough time to help everyone. Thanks! <3
