Python is a very popular open-source programming language. PostgreSQL is a very popular open-source relational database. It shouldn’t surprise us, then, to discover that many people are using PostgreSQL to store and retrieve data in their Python projects.

If you are thinking of using PostgreSQL in your project, but feel like you don’t know enough about it, this is a good place to start.
