PHP Town Hall

Phil, Ben and a super-star guest answer questions and talk about current events in the PHP world.

Episode 10: Postgres, Bla, Bla, Cider

This time around we’re joined by Selena Deckelmann, who as a Postgres contributor talks to us about some of the burning questions many PHP developers often have about Postgres when considering it as a replacement for the PHP’s defacto-standard relational DB: MySQL.

We ask “Why are so few of the “cool kids” using Postgresql?” and “What are the most important differences between MySQL & Postgres?”, and after a bunch of useful discussion on things like true full text search, complex indexes, PostGIS and Foreign Data Wrappers we end up discussing cider and chickens. Standard.

Discuss this on Reddit.
