Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Chris Venturini, and welcome to my course, SQLAlchemy Core in Python: Getting Started. I'm a technologist with over 10 years of industry experience and currently work as an engineering manager for Riot Games. Python has surged to the top of the development charts and its ecosystem around data frameworks has been a major contributor for this rise, and this is why. In this course, we are going to give a brief introduction to the very popular data toolkit in SQLAlchemy Core. Some of the major topics that we will cover include what is SQLAlchemy, the advantages to using it, how to query data with it, and finally, how to aggregate data in a meaningful way using SQLAlchemy. By the end of this course, you'll be presented with a challenge to test your skills to confirm your knowledge as you ascertain which hero did the best in our fictitious game, Heroes of the Endless War. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with general SQL concepts and the Python programming language. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn SQLAlchemy Core with the SQLAlchemy Core in Python: Getting Started course, at Pluralsight.
