Pycon Canada - the SQLAlchemy Session In Depth

Video is up for my Pycon.ca talk, The SQLAlchemy Session - In Depth. In this talk, I delve into the key philosophies behind the design of SQLAlchemy's Session system. Starting with a brief review of the ACID model, I contrast the approach of the so-called "active record" pattern to that of the more explicit Session pattern, and how the two approaches integrate with the ACID model at work within a relational database. Afterwards, I present an HTML animation of a Session object at work.
