Tonight on GeekNights, we consider PostgreSQL, the open-source relational database. It's basically the one to use. Most people just call it "postgres." If you're not sure what we're on about, check out our previous episode about relational databases. In the news, new laws mean new COBOL code, John Conway was taken from us, there's a gravity clock (sort of), and Discord is adding group video chat so you can replace Zoom. Also, Brian Swords of York has been rediscovered.

Relational Databases and SQL

Tonight on GeekNights, having already expressed our disdain for NoSQL, we consider the humble (and foundational) relational database. SQL, ACID, and all the fun stuff in between. In the news, we're playing PUBG (badly), Adobe is using machine learning to spot photoshops, facial recognition software is not ready safe for use by law enforcement, and your 1440p monitor might be a 4k panel (and that's not a good thing).

If you enjoy GeekNights at all, and you're also sick of nazis in your other forums, you should really check out the GeekNights Forum! Anime, Comics, Gaming, Technology: everything. No nazis or gomergators allowed.
