PostgreSQL

Working with PostgreSQL JSONB

PostgreSQL in version 9.4 introduced jsonb, a new column type for storing documents in binary JSON format. This makes it slightly slower to input due to added conversion overhead and might take more disk space to store. On the other hand it is significantly faster to process, since no reparsing is needed and supports indexing, which can be of a serious advantage.

Domain Driven Design, Object Oriented Programming

Domain Driven Design vs. Object Oriented Programming

 

A year ago, our team embarked on following the Domain Driven Design approach. As such, we ordered hard copies of Eric Evans book and Vaughn Vernon book. As soon as they arrived we delved into the techniques used for software development. At first, some of the techniques seemed out of place, but a year later, we found that there is an apparent benefit for our projects as much as for our teams.
