When Uber’s engineering team published a blog post about moving to MySQL from Postgres, Markus Winand started receiving lots of email. Markus writes about databases on his blog “Use The Index, Luke,” a guide to database performance for developers. The people emailing Markus wanted to know–if Postgres doesn’t work well for Uber, is it safe to use for anyone?
Markus wrote a detailed blog post that was a response to Uber’s discussion of Postgres, and in today’s episode Markus explains why Postgres is perfectly fine for most applications.
Most developers are not experts in choosing between different databases. The average developer knows the difference between a NoSQL database like Mongo and a normalized SQL database like MySQL–but that developer might not know the more subtle differences between different SQL databases like MySQL and Postgres.
That is why Markus’s site is so useful, and why it was a pleasure to have him on the show.

A long time ago in director’s head that is far far away from where it should be, George Lucas permanently marred his masterwork by adding the first of three unbelievably awful movies to the beginning of it. It was a sad, sad day.Episode 1 starts with a trade federation dispute (exciting!). Two jedis are sent to sit in a conference room because apparently they are a cheap resource. Some ridiculous antics later we’re introduced to the two most annoying characters in movie history: Jar Jar Binks and Anakin Skywalker. Although Jar Jar is credited with ruining the franchise, Anakin is at least as annoying and everything else in the movie sucks too.Blah blah blah queen votes for no confidence, jedis stop the droid invasion, WHOA A DOUBLE SIDED LIGHTSABER, and then something about the kid being a jedi because of a genetic condition. This movie is so bad my brain is melting.PODCRAWL 2013!This is not a trilogy we could suffer alone, so we enlisted the help of our 2nd and 3rd favorite bad-movie podcasts (behind ourselves). Finish the podcrawl:Episode II as reviewed by Flophouse (featuring RiaW guest Dan McCoy).Week of November 18: Episode III as reviewed by Proudly Resents (featuring RiaW guest Adam Spiegleman)
“Half a Life” (TNG) with John Gruber
