Asynchronous Notifications for Fun and Profit

Asynchronous notifications are a messaging mechanism built into PostgreSQL to allow it to be used as a message broker in distributed environments.

This talks sheds some light on asynchronous notifications and shows how they can be used from various programming languages and how distributed programs can be decoupled from each other.

If you want to now how the object oriented MVC paradigm or the Observer design pattern can be applied to the PostgreSQL database, this talk is for you.
