Python is an incredibly powerful, general purpose, high-level, object-oriented, dynamically-typed programming language that is easy to read and understand, and fun to write. To make it really exciting, all we need do is to be able to connect it to an equally powerful, and attractively priced version of the IBM® DB2® core engine. DB2 Express-C is a no-charge data server for use in development and deployment, that allows us to do this.
