Presentation on SQLObject & FormEncode

I gave a presentation tonight on SQLObject & FormEncode for the Bay Area Python Users Group (BayPiggies). Here are the slides for the presentation, which actually have 3 extra slides I didn’t show during the presentation because I forgot they were there (doh!).

Anyways, there were rather important I think as they actually showed two common cases where you’d want to use SQLObject and FormEncode together. That is, for moving data from a CSV file to a database, and for dealing with web forms. The latter of which I previously described in much more detail on here but it would’ve been nice to go over in the presentation, ah well.

If you’re curious about FormEncode, I put a decent amount of info into it along with some examples. It’s worth checking out if you’re ever in need of data validation and converting data types.
