PostgreSQL self-contained stored procedures example

Based on Derek’s now page he has ended his 7 year sabbatical and he’s taking Seth Godin’s advice to publish something every day. What Derek shared here is part of that commitment…

This week, I wrote a shopping cart to sell my books directly from my own site. So I took a couple extra hours today to put my code into public view, so anyone can play around with it.

It’s a working self-contained shopping cart / store. It’s a very concrete example of using stored procedures to keep all the data logic together in one place. You can use it from JavaScript, Python, Ruby, or any language you want, since all the functionality is in the database itself. It works.
