Or to be better say my PostgreSQL "hello World".
In this presentation I will illustrate the ways, the accidents and the surprises I had in my journey as MySQL DBA to implement a specular solution with PostgreSQL as total probie.
I will start from the basics, covering my journey in:

- Basic configuration
- Security definition
- Create a database and tables
- Backups
- Replication
- The magic behind indexes
