Date: Oct. 24, 2012
The range data type is a revolutionary new feature in PostgreSQL 9.2 that gives you the power to search and sieve over any data type that can be represented as a range (and very quickly too!).

After comparing what live was like for such queries before and after the range data type, we will look at some common applications and extensions, and additionally see how VenueBook uses range types in its daily operations.
