Advantage PostgreSQL

Date: 2024-03-12
Time: 13:10–14:00
Room: Main room

PostgreSQL has a daunting range of features, which can be an advantage to application developers. However it can be hard to know they exist or when to use them.

This talk will go through a range of features, which I've used over the years building applications, each with real world examples.

Taking a look at advanced data types like arrays, range types, JSON, etc and how these can be used to quickly solve common use cases.

Using more advanced SQL to process data quickly. Both in terms of development cost and performance.

How we can leverage advanced features such a Full Text Search, PostGIS, queues, etc to simplify application architecture, why deploy another component when PostgreSQL can do it.
