As it happens, I'll be doing a presentation on SQLAlchemy for the 
Portland PostgreSQL Users Group next Thursday.  (5/15, 7pm, FreeGeek)

I'll be presenting SQLAlchemy 0.5, which was just merged into the svn 
trunk a few moments ago and will go into alpha soon.  I'll mostly be 
demoing ORM queries, eager-loading and inheritance, plus some cool and 
pragmatic blending of ORM and relational operations that are now easy in 

I'm happy to do a talk for PDX Python too, but I'm not up to 
back-to-back talks this month.  I can also speak to Michael Trier's 
excellent django-sqlalchemy project somewhat, albeit mostly from an 
under the hood perspective.
