SQLAlchemy slides

I presented on SQLAlchemy at the Utah python user group last Thursday; slides are linked here.

In retrospect, for a shorter presentation like this I should probably spend more time talking about the ORM features, and less about the SQL layer. Although the SQL layer is useful on its own, and essential for doing advanced mapping, I don't think it has the sex appeal that the ORM has.

(Although I do think the first part, about why ORMs should allow you to take advantage of your database's strengths rather than being limited to a MySQL 3 feature set, was useful.)
