Okay, it's about 6am and I'm sitting next to Devrim right in his flat hacking up some Java web services code while he's doing some PostgreSQL related (possibly packaging) work. He was browsing through the Planet PostgreSQL site, and I asked, "Dude, can you get me there too?" That's how we got started.
We at Parkyeri have been developing solutions and services, mostly for GSM network providers around middle-east, that rely on PostgreSQL and we're a happy user of it. I have been using it in many projects over last few years right after I switched over my desktop to Linux from Windows. I was a happy InterBase (now you can safely call it FirebirdSQL) user and I was in search of a good replacement for it when I stumbled upon PostgreSQL. Yes, there was something called MySQL and they said it was fast, but one swallow doesn't make it my favorite database, you know. MySQL was only a bit better compared to raw filesystem storage because it allowed data access via SQL. Well well, it should be optional IMO, but that's another story.
At Parkyeri, we have some business with Oracle too. So I believe I'll be blogging about things that would make PostgreSQL #1 choice for anyone and I'll be devoting as much time as I can to the community to achieve that goal, as soon as possible. Thanks for reading, have fun with the next entry :)
