    Meet Beanie: A MongoDB ODM + Pydantic

    This podcast episode you're listening to right now was delivered to you, in part, by MongoDB and Python powering our web apps and production processes.

    SQLAlchemy is the most widely used ORM (Object Relational Mapper) for Python developers. It's been around since February 2006.
