Timescale Timeout: The History and Basics of PostgreSQL (Part I)

Timescale Timeout: The History and Basics of PostgreSQL                        
(Part I)

Welcome to the second installment of Timescale Timeout, a series of dev-to-dev talks about data-intensive applications, from individual projects to industry technologies, from best moments to lessons learned by cloud-native application developers.

In the first part of this episode, I spoke to my colleague and fellow Timescale developer advocate, Kirk Roybal. Together, we dived into the history of PostgreSQL, how it has evolved over the years, its use cases and competitive advantages over other databases, and so much more.

Kirk is a great storyteller and, in his own words, a genuine “PostgreSQL guy.” So, if you’re interested in learning more about how PostgreSQL works under the hood, its origins, and cool tips for users of all levels, including useful extensions, check this out. It will be worth your time.
