PostgreSQL 11 Server Side Programming Quick Start Guide

Last week my book PostgreSQL 11 Server Side Programming Quick Start Guide was released.

The book is a Quick Start Guide, that means it goes straight to the point, in this case, programming on the server-side of PostgreSQL.

Why is this related to Perl?
Well, one very cool feature of PostgreSQL is the capability to execute functions, and therefore triggers and procedures, in pretty much any programming language available out there. And this of course, means Perl!
In fact, Perl is very well supported in PostgreSQL to the point that the DO statement does allow you to use PL/Perl code instead of the PL/pgSQL one.

The other language I show, as a "foreign" language, in this book, is Java. My idea was to show to the readers the differences between using a language like Perl and one that requires a full compile-deploy cycle.

Hope the book can be useful.

!!! BLOG MOVED !!!

Come si può notare questo blog non viene piu' aggiornato da tempo. Il mio nuovo blog è disponibile al seguente URL:

Il contenuto di questo blog è stato incluso in quello nuovo, ma le formattazioni potrebbero renderne difficile la lettura o la ricerca. Questo blog verrà mantenuto "statico".

Mi sono attivato per riconfigurare gli aggregatori di questo blog di conseguenza.

As you can see, this blog has not been updated since a while. My new blog is available at the following URL:

The posts within this blog have been imported in the new one, but the formatting and templates could make it difficult to read and search for. This blog will remain as a "static" old version.

I'm migrating all aggregated feeds gradually and consequently.
