SQLAlchemy is a popular SQL toolkit and Object Relational Mapper. It is written in Python and gives full power and flexibility of SQL to an application developer. It is an open source and cross-platform software released under MIT license. SQLAlchemy is famous for its object-relational mapper (ORM), using which classes can be mapped to the database, thereby allowing the object model and database schema to develop in a cleanly decoupled way from the beginning.
This tutorial is designed for all those Python programmers who would like to understand the ORM framework with SQLAlchemy and its API.
Before you start proceeding with this tutorial, we assume you have a good understanding of the Python programming language. A basic understanding of relational databases, DB-API, and SQL is desired to understand this tutorial.
