PostgreSQL Server Side Programming for Javascript Developers

Date: 2017-10-26
Time: 14:40–15:30
Room: Baltic I
Level: Intermediate

One of the great features of PostgreSQL is its pluggable language handler allowing many different types of stored procedure languages including JavaScript aka PL/V8. This allows web developers to leverage their existing coding skills when writing database sever-side code. In this talk we will discuss:

  • Why someone would want to write server side code
  • How to create a PL/V8 function
  • How to interact with database objects
  • Returning results back to the application code
  • Creating event based functions or triggers
