PostgreSQL: Up and Running, 2nd Edition

A Practical Guide to the Advanced Open Source Database

Book Description:

Thinking of migrating to PostgreSQL? This clear, fast-paced introduction helps you understand and use this open source database system. Not only will you learn about the enterprise class features in versions 9.2, 9.3, and 9.4, you’ll also discover that PostgeSQL is more than a database system – it’s also an impressive application platform.

With examples throughout, this book shows you how to achieve tasks that are difficult or impossible in other databases. This second edition covers LATERAL queries, augmented JSON support, materialized views, and other key topics. If you’re a current PostgreSQL user, you’ll pick up gems you may have missed before.
