Slow & Steady

Benedikt talks to Andrew Atkinson about different types of database constraints and his upcoming book.
Andrew Atkinson is a staff software engineer at Fountain who is very passionate about Ruby on Rails and PostgreSQL (just like Benedikt!). He’s so passionate about them that he’s actually writing a book called “High Performance PostgreSQL for Rails” that’s coming out very soon.

Benedikt and Andrew also talk about dealing with constraints and ActiveRecord, Rails validations, and more.
