PostgreSQL and Node.JS

Talk Type: 
45 Minute Talk
Technical Level: 

So you've heard of node.js, but have you heard that there's also support for the worlds' best open-source database available? That's right! Even though it's the shiniest kid on the block and supports most of the big document stores and NoSQL systems, there's still a place for the reliability of Postgres.

This talk goes into the Javascript, the Node environment, and how to start writing evented code, before diving into using Postgres from node.js. We'll be focussing on the postgres.js driver under development by Aurynn Shaw, as well as the other PG drivers available.
