When we say something is best, we often offer conditions and qualifiers.
I truly believe SQLAlchemy's code repository could serve as a virtual UNESCO world heritage site. It's amazing how it abstracts SQL into python objects and allows access to the wheels, gears, the machinery of what you're trying to access.
The is the issue with the normal run of the mill developer, we've all seen a person who hugs a framework that does everything that does a lot of magic instead of growing an understanding of the internals.
I'm still fresh to this, but I'd like to share some good finds:
