Description

This talk is the updated and especially enhanced of the "Python and PostgreSQL - a match made in heaven" talk of EP 2006, CERN, Switzerland. PostgreSQL and Python share more then the first letter: their communities have great similiarities; their development processes are really comparable; their licenses and their openness to academics AND business (on a technical and communitie perspective) are big pluses. We will have a look at those similiarities and learn why PostgreSQL is really the database sister to Python. There will be an overview of PostgreSQL, information of how to connect PostgreSQL and Python; how PostgreSQL streaming replication works and what it can do for you, how PL/Python helps to have Web 2.5 JSON storage and handling right inside PostgreSQL. We will show that YESQL is also a valid answer to many data storage qeuestions.
