Introduction to PostgreSQL

A high level overview of the PostgreSQL database

PostgreSQL, also called PostgreSQL, is one of the most popular SQL database management systems (DBMS) ever.

It is Open Source, free for personal and commercial use, and it has a long history that started in 1996, building on top of other software that dates back to the 1980’s.

PostgreSQL is a really complete and full-featured general purpose relational database.

It provides support for most of the SQL standard, and also builds on top of it its unique set of features, to provide us a great tool.

We can interact with a PostgreSQL database using many different programming languages. Internally, being a relational database we’ll use SQL to insert, query and manipulate the data.

I am going to write a lot of PostgreSQL tutorials in the near future. I will link them here.
