It's semi-common knowledge that Postgres' dialect of SQL is Turing complete. This means any program you can write in a general purpose programming language, you can also write in SQL.

In this talk we'll walk through how you can use various SQL features to do things you really shouldn't be able to. We will specifically look at:

  • How you can write SQL queries to generate various kinds of fractals.
  • How you can write a programming language interpreter in SQL.
