Hi I'm Connor

Hi there my name’s Connor and I work on a site called Employbl to help candidates find tech jobs. We’re built on Laravel and a Postgres and use Vue.js on the frontend. In my day job I work at a company called Phone2Action and live in the Bay Area.

Welcome Connor! Good to see you on here.

How’s your experience with Postgres? Any reason why you use that over MySQL/MariaDB?

We were on MySQL via Forge and a digital ocean droplet. We had some issues with our SSL cert that we couldn’t fix so moved over to Render: https://render.com/ they support Laravel apps with Postgres and a Docker container. Fortunately didn’t have to do much Docker stuff but did migrate DB to Postgres. Seems okay so far, just need to write my eloquent queries differently some of the time :wink:
