Although half of the meetup is going to cover the basics of PostgreSQL, we want everybody to come, including "gurus", because of the following reasons:
• The 2nd lecture
• This is our 1st meetup!
• The mingling
• With Reuven, you can never know what you will learn, even if it's an Intro lecture...
PostgreSQL, your NoSQL Database:
For nearly 20 years, PostgreSQL has had a reputation as a rock-solid, open-source, relational database. Many companies around the world have turned to it when they want to store and retrieve data using the relational model.
In recent years, with the growth of NoSQL databases, some people have wondered whether PostgreSQL is really an appropriate tool for modern times and needs. The answer is "yes" -- not only because PostgreSQL's relational capabilities continue to grow and improve, but also because it now offers many NoSQL-style functions.
In this talk, this functionality will be demonstrated, to show that PostgreSQL is often a better choice for your applications than many strictly NoSQL solutions.
