Preparations are just about complete for my upcoming tutorial Introduction to SQLAlchemy. There's a good crowd of people already attending, and I think registration is still open in case more people want to sign up.
But in any case, if you are coming, this year there is prerequisite material, including the software installs as well as a "Relational Overview" section that covers the basics of SQL and relational databases. Everyone coming to the tutorial should read through this document, so that we're all on roughly the same page regarding upfront SQL knowledge, and try to get the software installed. If there's any issues with the software, please report bugs to me and we'll try to get them resolved by tutorial time. We will also be available at the Wednesday 6:30pm tutorial setup session to help with installs.
Historically, tutorials pack the whole three hours of material up pretty solidly, and I hope I can balance getting lots of coverage versus not talking too fast. Thanks for signing up !
