A Curious Moon

$19.00

Follow along with Dee Yan, our fictional data science intern, as she assumes the job of interim database administrator at the fictional aerospace startup, Red:4. She’ll learn PostgreSQL like we all do: on the job and under pressure.

Mostly a PostgreSQL tutorial, this book also has a narrative element in the spirit of The Martian. You’ll start out with the basics: creating tables and importing data. Soon, however, you’ll be awash in glorious SQL and data from space (the NASA/JPL archives of the Cassini mission), creating functions, common table expressions and calculating aggregates using window functions all in the name of science while trying to figure out if there’s life under the ice of a very curious little moon.
