  • Buildpacks and Paketo with Ram Iyengar | 2021-09-15
    Aaron: And everybody is always telling me I should just be using containers. I don't need to run Postgres locally on my machine, and I could just have it in the container. But I do very well in keeping my Python environments separate. I do use virtual environments there. But yeah, I guess being a developer advocate, you probably come across it yourself as well. We're very often working on a team of one on a project. [laughs] So it's very easy to skip through best practices. So anything that can make it easier for me to have a nice local dev environment, I'm all for it. So as well as the Buildpacks then, tell me a little bit more about your work at Cloud Foundry. So you're not just like a Buildpack advocate. You're an advocate for Cloud Foundry itself. Is that correct?
  • Hello Ghostfolio 👋 — Personal Finance Management Software | 2021-09-12
    With this background I have started the ambitious project and programmed with small steps a software that I could quickly use for myself. As a stack, I chose modern web technologies that are personally of particular interest or that I would like to learn and deepen. These include Docker, Nx for the management of the monorepo, NestJS for the backend and PostgreSQL as a database. The code of the frontend and backend is written in TypeScript.
  • I design ERP and come here to give my propositions to like minds folks | 2021-09-12
    I designed alone from scratch these information systems on top of PostERP, the information systems development and execution framework I started to design in year 2003 from ground up. All of them except R3 Thin Client are collectively called as PostERP as they are built with PostgreSQL which I have been using for 23+ years.
  • 5 Lessons I Learned in 7 Years as a Software Developer | 2021-09-10
    If you are trying to build real-world or moderately complex applications, you'll realize that there are many relations between the data you are storing. So when you have relational data, RDBMS is best suited to manage the relational data. The most common RDBMS which are in use are MySQL, PostgreSQL. SQL database manages and performs better than NoSQL database when it comes to relational data. SQL databases can easily map the data. You can fetch the data easily with a single SQL query.

    Its also necessary to create a database and users table before anything. I've used PostegreSQL as database and pgAdmin 4 interface to create the DB and table.
  • Breaking Up Rails Monoliths and Contact-Driven API Development with Dmitry Pashkevich | 2021-09-08
    Dmitry: We're setting ourselves up for this. As I mentioned, physically, it's still one database; however, many shared database connections exist. But in the future, this kind of logical segregation will enable things like...we use Postgres for our database, and Postgres supports using multiple database schemas where you can get some performance benefits in actually keeping different tables in different schemas. And Ultimately, they can become their own databases running on different servers.

  • MongoDB, Mongoose, and MongoDB Atlas (Cloud Service) | 2021-09-06
    I recently used MongoDB in a project; and being my first time of using it in production, I must say it really helped in bootstrapping. This advantage of MongoDB was made more obvious to me this time around because I used it alongside PostgreSQL in this same project. The overhead I had in swapping things around in PostgreSQL was relatively higher than in MongoDB.

    Postgres - "The World's Most Advanced Open Source Relational Database"
  • Does multithreading make sense here?
    If for some reason SQLite's limitations become an issue for you, and you need a battle tested high performance database, I can highly recommend PostgreSQL. It's a classic server/client database though, so not trivial to set up for production use.
  • How to use Redis Cluster for caching | 2021-09-02
    Redis is a key-value store. In rough terms, it works just like a database, but it keeps its data in memory, which means that reads and writes are orders of magnitude faster compared to relational databases like PostgreSQL. It is important to mention that Redis does not replace a relational database. It has its own use-cases and we will explore some of them in this post.

  • Using YugabyteDB in Python App Development | 2021-08-28
    As a long time PostgreSQL user, it's normal that YugabyteDB got my attention. It's a distributed SQL database which features-compatible with PostgreSQL so that I don't need to lose my investation. YugabyteDB reuses PostgreSQL's query layer, so I can use my development tools as usual. It gives me more since there is also Cassandra query layer. Using YugabyteDB I can reuse my SQL skill and development tools, enhanced with NOSQL data model (especially wide-column store), while I have NewSQL's resiliency, scalability, and high performance.
