Description

In this production, a SQL Server DBA (Rob Sullivan) and a developer (Rob Conery) take a deep dive into PostGreSQL (v9.1). This series was originally about Mono and ASP.NET MVC - but "the Robs" quickly found themselves amazed and surprised by just how capable, intelligent and fast PostGreSQL is. The goal of this production is to introduce people to PostGres who aren't familiar with the system.
