PostgreSQL gotchas for app developers

English session - Intermediate

Some things when it comes to working with databases are obvious to everybody. Other things are hidden from everybody. Yet some can be obvious to an experienced DBA, but come as a big surprise to application developers, and these can often be different between different databases.
