After Getting Started, it’s time to go deeper into the most common use-cases for Citus.

It also talks about common challenges for scaling and how to solve them.
  • Real Time Dashboards talks about the other prominent Citus use case: super fast, highly parallel aggregate queries. It shows how to model the backend for a web dashboard for event data. It talks about managing constantly increasing data, even when the data is somewhat unstructured.
