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!
