Ten years ago Postgres was a safe and stable database, but not at the same level of user friendly-ness or rich feature set as other databases. At some point that all started to change as it learned from MySQL and Mongo, we'll examine some of that journey of how it went to respected by DBAs to beloved by application developers. We'll close with a look at what the next five years may hold.
