PostgreSQL: From Idea to Database - Table of Contents
PostgreSQL: From Idea to Database is a series of blog posts written to teach practical database design.
This series does not wax poetic about the theory of relational databases or normalized form. Instead we focus on practical examples that illustrates why the theory matters and applies.
Series in progress
