For Immediate Release


April 17, 2002--PostgreSQL, Inc. and No Starch Press, Inc. today announced their agreement to publish an introductory PostgreSQL book for database programmers. POSTGRESQL: AN INTRODUCTION TO SOFTWARE ENGINEERING will be released in the fall of 2002.

PostgreSQL, Inc. (, founded in 1999, seeks to promote the continuous growth in use, application development, training and certification programs for PostgreSQL. PostgreSQL, a sophisticated Object-Relational DBMS, supports almost all SQL constructs, including subselects, transactions, and user-defined types and functions. It is the most advanced open source database available anywhere.

No Starch Press, Inc. (, founded in 1994, publishes high quality computer books on open source, alternative operating systems, programming, and other critical topics. No Starch Press titles are distributed worldwide, and are translated into many different languages.

According to Bill Pollock, President of No Starch Press, Inc., "We do our part as a publisher to support open source by delivering high quality books that help people to use important open source tools, like PostgreSQL. This book will be the essential reference for any serious PostgreSQL user."

Geoff Davidson, CEO at PostgreSQL, Inc. is very excited about publishing this new book. "There is a great demand for reference materials on building PostgreSQL databases, and this book will provide practical examples for novice and expert alike. In addition to the basics of programming in PostgreSQL, this book will also cover some advanced database design and development including our commercially successful replication server (eRServer)."

The book will also serve as the textbook for the 'PostgreSQL Certified Software Engineer' (PgSCE) program for database designers and programmers, offered this fall at Toronto's Centennial College and online through and PostgreSQL, Inc. 

According to Bruce Miner of Adaptive Tutoring, "PostgreSQL is the most advanced open source database available today. It is a key component in our acclaimed online learning programs, and a critical factor in many of the recent successes our team of programmers and developers have delivered across several industries. This book will help to train and prepare a new generation of application developers competent and capable of creating new and better information management solutions, in a job market that has an increasing demand for qualified PostgreSQL designers and developers."

POSTGRESQL: AN INTRODUCTION TO SOFTWARE ENGINEERING is the first in a series of books and Certification programs supporting training and development of highly qualified and competent database developers. Forthcoming titles and programs will cover Specialized Certification for PostgreSQL Systems Administrators (PgCSA) and PostgreSQL Database Architects (PgCDBA).
