Hailing from an application programming background, Open Source was not an unheard term to me.

When to Use Sever-Side Logic
The use of server-side logic, particularly stored procedures, has been a highly contentious topic among database professionals for decades. The question has always been what amount of logic should be encoded in the database vs. in client applications or application servers. Beyond using the database as a simple data store, there are three levels in which logic can be added to Postgres: — Database constraints, e.g. unique, check, foreign keys — Triggers — Manually-called stored procedures, i.e., functions not called as triggers Let’s look at each of these in turn: 1.Database […]
