Howdah - An Application using Pylons, PostgreSQL, Simpycity and Exceptable

Aurynn Shaw

This mini-tutorial covers building a small application on Howdah, an open source, Python based web development framework by Commandprompt, Inc. We will cover the full process of designing a vertically coherent application on Howdah, integrating DB-level stored procedures, DB exception propagation through Exceptable, DB access through Simpycity, authentication through repoze.who, permissions through VerticallyChallenged, and application views through Pylons. By the end of the talk, we will have covered a full application built on The Stack, and how to cover common pitfalls in using Howdah components.
