Psycopg is one of the first and arguably the most used PostgreSQL drivers for the Python programming language. The core functionalities are strictly modelled after the standard Python API for database drivers, but many additional features allow the use of the rich functionalities offered by PostgreSQL. In the talk we will examine some of the advanced functions and new features available in the latest Psycopg releases: asynchronous communication, notifications, server-side cursors, advanced data mapping between Python and PostgreSQL, the upcoming support for two-phase commit and hstore objects.
