Data is getting bigger and more complex by the
day, and so are your choices in handling it. If you thought Bruce A. Tate’s

different language ideas, now you can do the same with databases.

and Postgres: with each database, you’ll tackle a real-world data problem that
highlights the concepts and features that make it shine. You’ll explore the

document, and graph. See which kinds of problems are best suited to each, and
when to use them.

the databases, their strengths and weaknesses, and how to choose the ones that
fit your needs.
