This tutorial presents a :mod:`repoze.bfg` application that uses technologies which will be familiar to someone with :term:`Pylons` experience. It uses :term:`SQLAlchemy` as a persistence mechanism and :term:`url dispatch` to map URLs to code. It can also be followed by people without any prior Python web framework experience.
To code along with this tutorial, the developer will need a UNIX machine with development tools (Mac OS X with XCode, any Linux or BSD variant, etc) or he will need a Windows system of any kind.
This tutorial is targeted at :mod:`repoze.bfg` version 1.2.
