Postgres for MySQL users [view Meetup event]
Presented by Liam Wiltshire (@l_wiltshire)
Postgres - a powerful DBMS with a big feature set, good performance, and is built stability. Yet in PHP, it's commonly overlooked for mySQL (and its forks) or NoSQL options.
If you’re a mySQL user, Postgres might seem strange - from the way you install and configure it to the way you interact with it and create schemas. Things are different.
Join Liam as he discusses reasons you might use Postgres, and looks at the differences between the two.
Liam is a UK based Senior PHP Developer & Business Manager at Tebex, creators of Buycraft.net, the first e-commerce platform for Minecraft. In his nine years as a dev, he's tackled projects large and small, from multi-million pound eCommerce sites to the plumber down the road looking for 'mates' rates. These days Liam focuses on providing gCommerce platforms for multiplayer sandbox games, and in his spare time is trying to learn the secret to actually having some spare time.
