Exercise 23: Setting Up PostgreSQL

The final exercise in this book will teach you to setup a basic PostgreSQL database on your desktop machine. This will not teach you how to properly manage a PostgreSQL database. It is only going to show you enough to work with one for development purposes and how to load your SQlite3 database into a PostgreSQL database. I am mostly writing this exercise because I constantly forget how to setup PostgreSQL on the different machines I need to use. I figure if I'm forgetting how every time then it must be something that other people will definitely need.

This exercise is not a written exercise because installing software is easier to demonstrate in a video than in writing. Please watch the video for your given platform and take notes. There is a video for Linux, OSX, and Windows that you can watch.

NOTE: I may change this after I record the video and write out the steps I took for reference later.
