RocPy 11/19/13: The Day My Brain Melted

I thought I could program.  After a few years of studying games and writing code, I assumed a bit of competency on my part.  Call it pride if you want, but it is what it is.  Yesterday, I went to the Rochester Python user’s group meeting: RocPy.  Python isn’t my forte, but on that day it really wasn’t my forte.  The topic was database management in Python.  I’m not particularly good at database anything, so it was already difficult.  Throw on an explanation of ORM’s and my head starts to hurt.  Finish it off with a comparison between SQLAlchemy and Django and you can consider me humbled.

I needed this.  I was too big for my britches.  The true programming masters are the ones who know what they don’t know, and I learned exactly what I don’t know: a lot.
