Re: [PLUG] Weigh in: what PostgreSQL talk would you like to hear?


This is a great idea and thanks for getting it going.  I haven't used Postgres in probably 9-10 years, even then, I wasn't very hands on mostly experimentation.  In the meantime, I've picked up a great deal of mySQL knowledge and since Oracle's acquisition have been considering Postgres again.

I'd like to really hear about some of the key differences between mySQL and Postgres, in regards to management, performance etc.  Along with difficulty of migrating would be very helpful.

Not sure if this one has been done, but the Get-To-Know talk seems
interesting in the project page.

I understand databases, and generally use MySQL on linux, mostly
because that is what all the upstream projects tend to target.  I've
heard lots of argument that Postgres is better, but I'd like to know
whether it is worth switching, and what to expect.
