An Introduction to Database Programming with Python [ID:277]
a series of video-tutorials by Kyran Dale
As you might expect Python makes database programming a relatively painless affair. The Python database API (DBAPI) provides a 'database neutral' programming interface for databases such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, MS-SQL and Oracle, among others, based on the structured query language SQL. In this series we show you what the DBAPI is, a bit of how it works, and how it can be used to connect Python programs to SQL databases. We demonstrate how existing databases can be accessed and used and how Python can create new databases, add tables and populate those tables with data.
