Postgres for non-Postgres people

Getting to know the Postgres way

Experience in one database system does not always make learning another one easy. Although Postgres is more SQL-compliant than just about anything else, there are plenty of quirks, features, and gotchas that you should be aware of.

Postgres has an active and thriving community. We'll explore what makes the project unique, from developer philosophy to SQL features to advocacy, and everything in between. If you are coming from another database system, this will get you up to speed on the important differences between Postgres and everything else.
