With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form—the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes—so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they're written, and the final ebook bundle.

Thinking of migrating to PostgreSQL? This clear, fast-paced introduction helps you understand and use this open source database system. Not only will you learn about the enterprise class features in the 9.3 release (with highlights of 9.4), you’ll also discover that PostgeSQL is more than just a database system—it’s also an impressive application platform.

With numerous examples throughout, this book shows you how to achieve tasks that are difficult or impossible in other databases. The second edition covers LATERAL queries, augmented JSON support, materialized views, and other key topics. If you’re an existing PostgreSQL user, you’ll pick up gems you may have missed along the way.
