Rails and PostgreSQL1:37 with Jay McGavren
When it comes time to release a serious app that will have thousands of users to production, SQLite is no longer sufficient. Only one thing can be written to a SQLite database at a time, meaning slower performance if you have many users trying to save data at once. SQLite also lacks certain features used for performance optimization. Rails can easily be configured to work with a wide variety of other databases. One of the most popular for production use is PostgreSQL. Postgres has more features than SQLite and is more compliant with the standards for SQL. In this workshop, we're going to cover using Postgres with your Rails app.
