Is "putting as much of your application logic into SQL" the preferred
way to develop DB-driven applications? I ask this because the only
database I've used is MySQL, which I enjoyed learning about and using
but required me to implement a lot of the DB logic in my application
code. (It was a PHP app.) That's why I want to try PostgreSQL, to get
more experience with writing logic into the database itself. But I was
curious if there are any resources that discuss why this methodology is
preferrable if indeed it is.
PS: I agree that Python is a great language!
