November 2010 | Content Management, MySQL, Open Source

MySQL for Python is a new book from Packt aimed at helping programmers gain hassle-free access to their MySQL database through their Python application. Written by Albert Lukaszewski, this book includes many real world examples to demonstrate the full potential of MySQL for Python.

Python is a dynamic programming language which is completely enterprise ready, owing largely to the variety of support modules that are available to extend its capabilities. In order to build productive and feature-rich Python applications, programmers need to use MySql for Python, a module that provides database support to their applications.

The book starts by exploring the various means of installing MySQL for Python on different platforms and how to use simple database querying techniques. Users will then learn data insertion, data retrieval, and error-handling techniques to create robust programs. The book also covers automation of both database and user creation, and administration of access controls.

Python users will be able to use aggregate functions to make MySQL take the burden off their web server. They will learn to save time and processing resources by scripting JOINs and subqueries. By the end of the book, readers will master several techniques for interfacing their Python applications with MySQL effectively.

A practical, tutorial-style book, ideal for intermediate Python users, programmers and every focused user of the MySQL for Python library who want real-world applications using the powerful combination of Python and MySQL. This book is out now and available from Packt. For more information, please visit: www.PacktPub.com/mysql-for-python-database-access-made-easy/book.
