I’m embarking on a (very cool) project to port an app from SQL Server to Postgres. To this end, I need to get up-to-speed on Postgres stored procs.
I looked around for some good books. Joseph Scott — Postgres champion that he is — recommended a few as well. However, the concensus I found is that the official documentation is the best resource there is, and no book is as good. So I now have a 1,500-page PDF file of the offical Postgres documentation. What do I do with it?
I need it in hardcopy, since the only time I have to read is when I’m away from the compuer. But I don’t relish the idea of carrying around 1,500 8.5 x 11” sheets of paper. I could put them in a three-ring binder, but that’s hardly portable.
I need this documentation in standard trade paperback format. How do you do this? Can commercial printers bound one-off PDFs like this? Is there a better way?
