What's the great thing about a database? Why, it stores data of course! However, one feature that makes a database useful is the different data types that can be stored in it, and the breadth and sophistication of the data types in PostgreSQL is second-to-none, including some novel data types that do not exist in any other type of database software!
Come join NYCPUG on January 23, 2013 to listen to Jim, Mason, and Jonathan provide a whirlwind tour of the built-in PostgreSQL data types and their functions including:
- Date / Time (which is a pleasure to work with in PostgreSQL)
- Geometric Types
- JSON / XML
- Range Types
- Fulltext Search types
- Composite and Custom Typing
