Postgres Demystified

Date: 2013-02-03
Time: 13:00–13:50
Room: AW1.121
Level: Intermediate

Postgres has long been known as a stable database product that reliably stores your data. However, in recent years it has picked up many features, allowing it to become a much sexier database.

We'll cover a whirlwind of Postgres features, which highlight why you should consider it for your next project. These include:

  • Datatypes
  • Using other languages within Postgres
  • Extensions including NoSQL inside your SQL database
  • Accessing your non-Postgres data (Redis, Oracle, MySQL) from within Postgres
  • Window Functions
