Free Copy of Instant PostgreSQL Starter

Another free book giveaway? What, am I running a library here? Well, it turns out Packt liked my review of Instant PostgreSQL Starter so much, they want me host a short period where you can obtain your very own copy for the low, low price of $0.

To those ends, I have a few brand new digital copies comprised of shiny premium electrons ready to dispense to three lucky commenters. Does that sound good? Is that something you want? In that case, you need to know that Instant PostgreSQL Starter really is a starter in every sense of the word. The assumption here is that you’ve never (or rarely) interacted with a database, and want to whet your appetite with some basics.

As my review stated, it starts with SQL basics, and moves on to several features the author personally found noteworthy and useful. It casts a very wide net, and seems to target application developers who need data storage, or someone tasked with administering a small database out of necessity. Everything from basic performance analysis, to cryptography, to full-text search, and simple backups. It’s a tiny smorgasbord that may lead a reader to pursue greater heights.

If that sounds like something that’s up your alley, all you need to do is leave a comment in this blog entry. Three lucky winners will be bequeathed an official copy to show off to their friends.
