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. I presented one of my favourite talks over there, where the whole goal is to blow the mind of innocent developers and show them how much they can do in just SQL.

PostgreSQL for developers, window functions galore! The basis for the talk is this detailed blog entry about the Reset Counter application and how to leverage SQL to write the code for it.

Hier soir se déroulait le troisième Meetup PostgreSQL à Paris, et je crois pouvoir dire que tous les participants étaient ravis de cette édition. Malheureusement, quelques uns sont restés bloqués du mauvais côté de la porte hier soir, j’en suis navré. Nous essayerons d’étendre nos horaires d’accueil lors des prochaines rencontres, dans la mesure du possible. Les sponsors de la soirée Un grand merci à nos sponsors : hier soir eNovance nous accueillait dans une superbe salle de conférence et Hegoa s’est chargée de mettre à disposition des participants un buffet très apprécié.

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:

PostgreSQL is YeSQL! Nordic PostgreSQL Conference The conference was very well put together and the occasion to meet with plenty of well known PostgreSQL friends and newcomers to the community too. If you were there, I hope you had as much of a good time than I did!

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.

If you’re interested into the talk contents, then you might be interested into the following list of articles where I actually did all the work leading to the slides in the above PDF:

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! I will be talking about Advanced Extension Use Cases on Friday, see you in Brussels!

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 ! Magnus Hagander, core-team member Pour notre seconde rencontre, un membre de la “core-team” de PostgreSQL sera parmis nous. En effet Magnus Hagander de passage à Paris viendra nous présenter un sujet soumis au vote : préférez-vous entendre parler de PostgreSQL 9.

Comme annoncé dans un mail sur la liste de diffusion pgsql-fr-generale j’ai le plaisir de démarrer un groupe de rencontres PostgreSQL à Paris ! Les détails pratiques sont disponibles sur PostgreSQL User Group Paris sur Meetup, y compris l’adresse et comment s’inscrire. Il est important de s’inscrire car nous prévoyons d’accueillir des sponsors dont l’investissement sera employé à nourrir et désaltérer notre joyeux groupe ! L’idée de cette rencontre est bien évidemment de faire se rencontrer des utilisateurs de PostgreSQL et de discutter de notre solution de gestion de base de données préférée, et surtout de comment on l’utilise et quels problèmes on résoud déjà avec, ou bien quels nouveaux problèmes on aimerait être capable de résoudre en utilisant PostgreSQL.

Last week I had the pleasure to present two talks at the awesome PostgreSQL Conference Europe. The first one was actually a tutorial about Writing & using Postgres Extensions where we spent 3 hours on what are PostgreSQL Extensions, what you can expect from them, and how to develop a new one. Then I also had the opportunity to present the new version of pgloader in a talk about Migrating from MySQL to PostgreSQL.

At the Open World Forum two weeks ago I had the pleasure to meet with Colin Charles. We had a nice talk about the current state of both MariaDB and PostgreSQL, and even were both interviewed by the Open World Forum Team. The interview is now available online. Dear French readers, it’s in English. Here’s the video: Executive Summary: MariaDB is a drop-in fully Open Source replacement for MySQL and sees quite some progress and innovation being made, and PostgreSQL is YeSQL!

Last Friday I had the chance to be speaking at the Open World Forum in the NewSQL track, where we had lots of interest and excitement around the NoSQL offerings. Of course, my talk was about explaining how PostgreSQL is Web Scale with some historical background and technical examples about what this database engine is currently capable of.

PostgreSQL is Web Scale. PostgreSQL is YeSQL! The conclusion of the talk is that indeed, PostgreSQL is YeSQL!
