Integrating PostgreSQL

Rails Israel 2013 Conference, Wednesday, October 9, 2013, 15:10

Historically, many Ruby on Rails applications used MySQL.  But over the last few years, thanks partly to Heroku and partly to the politics of MySQL/Sun/Oracle, more and more people have been using PostgreSQL in their projects.

This talk is an introduction to PostgreSQL from the perspective of a Rails user.  What is different?  What new capabilities can I enjoy?  How do I use PostgreSQL's advanced transactions, server-side functions, custom data-integrity checks, and other features to make my Rails app more expressive and efficient than would be possible with MySQL?
