Why I like PostgreSQL more than MySQL: Zalando!

Whenever I tell a manager about PostgreSQL the first thing they ask is "who uses it?", asif tools are only good if someone they know uses them.

Well how about, oh, one of the largest mailorder companies in the world: Zalando? Will that do?

And guess what, they do exactly what I'm always on about: Let the database control the data; define a stored-procedure based API in the database and let applications talk to that.

Permission to look smug sir? Granted!
