I recently came across this simple solution of doing bulk queries in django using transaction management trick –>
This was a very simple post of language showdown. The problem is very trivial, so this in no way indicates what language is better or worse. It’s just about looking how it’s done elsewhere.
Redundant to say, python is clean and elegant as always. Just go through the link below and check out. I am thankful for coming across python.
Nice post on how not to query the crap out of your database –>
Nice introductory video –>

After reading the following posts it was pretty clear why pip should be preferred over easy_install –>
After reading this i tried looking at — http://www.pip-installer.org/en/latest/index.html
Yes, it’s right, you have an uninstall option and things are cleaner.
I had pip installed. When I started using the pip search it said it doesn’t recognize search. I got —
pip: error: No command by the name pip search
I realized, I was using pip version 0.32 and the world had advanced too much since this was installed! pip search wasn’t available back then. This older version was due to the pip I had installed using apt-get and it would take ages for them to realize there is a new version of a particular package there(no offence, i love apt). So i removed the python-pip package and then did a
sudo easy_install pip
(probably for the last time) It reminds me my earlier days when the first thing I would do after installing windows was to open IE and download firefox!
Anyhow, so now I have pip 1.0.2 installed and it is great to search python packages, install (obviously) and uninstall (not so obvious Mr. Easy_installer) and be happy from now on!
