Some experience


SQLite is the world's most widely used database and has been a part of the Python standard library since 2006. It continues to evolve and offer more capabilities every year.

This tutorial will transform you into a SQLite power-user. You'll learn to use SQLite with Python, level up your SQL skills and take advantage of libraries such as sqlite-utils and tools such as Datasette to explore and analyze data in all kinds of shapes and sizes.

This hands-on tutorial will cover:

  • The sqlite3 module in the Python standard library
  • A review of SQL basics, plus advanced SQL features available in SQLite
  • Using sqlite-utils for advanced manipulation of SQLite databases
  • Datasette as a tool for exploring, analyzing and publishing data
  • Applying the Baked Data architectural pattern to build a data application using Datasette and deploy it to the cloud

This tutorial is aimed at beginner-to-intermediate Python users with some previous exposure to basic SQL.

Attendees will leave this workshop with a powerful new set of tools for productively exploring, analyzing and publishing data.
