PHP Tour, La Video

September, 10 2014

En juin dernier se tenait le PHP Tour 2014 à Lyon, où j'ai eu le plaisir de présenter une conférence sur PostgreSQL en 2014.

 

Next month, Postgres Open 2014 is happening in Chicago, and I'll have the pleasure to host a tutorial about PostgreSQL Extensions Writing & Using Postgres Extensions, and a talk aimed at developers wanting to make the best out of PostgreSQL, PostgreSQL for developers:

 

Earlier this year we did compare compare Aggregating NBA data, PostgreSQL vs MongoDB then talked about PostgreSQL, Aggregates and histograms where we even produced a nice Histogram chart directly within the awesome psql console. Today, let's get that same idea to the next level, with pgcharts:

 

PHP Tour 2014

June, 27 2014

En début de semaine se tenait le PHP Tour 2014 à Lyon, et j'ai eu le privilège d'y être invité afin de présenter comment Utiliser PostgreSQL en 2014.

 

Ce mois-ci est particulièrement actif en terme de conférences françaises, puisqu'après un détour à Toulon pour les PGDay.fr nous avons un Meetup à Paris puis une conférence PHP Tour 2014 à Lyon.

 

pgloader loads data into PostgreSQL. The new version is stable enough nowadays that it's soon to be released, the last piece of the 3.1.0 puzzle being full debian packaging of the tool.

 

New York!

April, 17 2014

A couple of week ago I had the chance to participate into the PGConf NYC 2014 Conference, one of the biggest conferences about PostgreSQL worldwide.

 

Hier soir se déroulait le troisième Meetup PostgreSQL à Paris, et je crois pouvoir dire que tous les participants étaient ravis de cette édition.

 

Last week some PostgreSQL users, contributors and advocates have organized a really great conference in Stockholm, Sweden, where I had the please to give the following talk:

 

In our previous article Aggregating NBA data, PostgreSQL vs MongoDB we spent time comparing the pretty new MongoDB Aggregation Framework with the decades old SQL aggregates. Today, let's showcase more of those SQL aggregates, producing a nice histogram right from our SQL console.

 

When reading the article Crunching 30 Years of NBA Data with MongoDB Aggregation I coulnd't help but think that we've been enjoying aggregates in SQL for 3 or 4 decades already. When using PostgreSQL it's even easy to actually add your own aggregates given the SQL command create aggregate.

 

Back from the FODESM 2014 Conference, here's the slides I've been using for the Advanced Extension Use Cases talk I gave, based on the ongoing work to be found under the Tour of Extensions index in this web site.

 

FOSDEM 2014

January, 29 2014

This year again the PostgreSQL community is organising a FOSDEM PGDay rigth before the main event. Have a look at the PostgreSQL FOSDEM Schedule, it's packed with awesome talks... personnaly, it's been awhile since I wanted to see so many of them!

 

Notre première rencontre des utilisateurs Parisiens de PostgreSQL avait eu lieue le 28 novembre 2013 et a fait l'objet d'un billet de présentation ici-même : l'article Groupe d'Utilisateurs PostgreSQL à Paris annonce la création du groupe !

 

The code of El-Get has been pretty stable for a long time now. About the whole set of patches against the 4.x series has been about bug fixing corner cases (sometimes cases that had nothing cornery about them too) and providing more and more recipes. That's what you expect from a stable software, and that what allows us to move to a rolling releases model.
