This tutorial presents a :app:`Pyramid` application that uses technologies which will be familiar to someone with SQL database experience. It uses :term:`SQLAlchemy` as a persistence mechanism and :term:`url dispatch` to map URLs to code.
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 has been written for Python 2. It is unlikely to work without modification under Python 3.
