“Taming Serpents and Pachyderms” records the musings of Joe Abbate, database technologist.

In particular, the blog will explore the thinking behind the Pyrseas project, a free and open source software project to develop a framework and utilities to create, upgrade and maintain a PostgreSQL database.  Its aim is to enhance and follow through on some of the concepts of the Andromeda project. The name comes from Python, the programming language, and Perseas, the Greek mythological hero who rescued Andromeda from a sea monster.
