About the talk:
We will begin our journey by taking a look at a few different reasons why you would want to use a persistent data store, a relational database, and finally why you should just use Postgres most of the time. Having established what it’s used for, we will begin looking at the myriad of ways that the Go community has developed for working with databases, and Postgres in particular.
