Postgres Succinctly

Although the number of database systems on the market is constantly climbing, the Postgres database continues to be an under-championed, reliable option for many scenarios. Its open-source nature, cross-platform flexibility, and wide selection of additional tools are just some of the strengths that make this system a go-to for any data management need, enterprise or otherwise. In Postgres Succinctly, author Peter Shaw guides you from installing Postgres, to creating your first database, to using Postgres in a .NET application with ADO .NET and Entity Framework.
