This version of the Pyramid wiki tutorial presents a Pyramid application that uses technologies which will be familiar to someone with SQL database experience. It uses SQLAlchemy as a persistence mechanism and url dispatch to map URLs to code. It can also be followed by people without any prior Python web framework experience.
To code along with this tutorial, the developer will need a UNIX machine with development tools (Mac OS X with XCode, any Linux or BSD variant, etc) or a Windows system of any kind.
This tutorial runs on both Python 2 and 3 without modification.
