PostgreSQL Conference US took place in New York City and I had the pleasure to be a speaker there. I presented there a talk about why You’d Better Have Tested Backups. The important bit is that backups are not interesting, recoveries are. Also the only way to make sure a backup is successful is to be able to use it for recovery.

I had the pleasure to be invited to speak at All Your Base Conference 2015 about PostgreSQL (of course). The conference gathers together lots of user experience around data management and database products, either in the now classic meaning of the word (I mean relational database management systems here) or the newer set of trade-offs represented by the NoSQL set of tools.
I was lucky to participate as a speaker to the Nordic PostgreSQL Day 2015 and it’s been another awesome edition of the conference. Really smooth, everything has been running as it should, with about one hundred people at the conference.
The FOSDEM 2015 edition has been awesome this year, the usual mix of meeting with old friends, talking about interesting topics, seeing tremendous activity in all Open Source domains, and having Belgium beers in the evenings.
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:
The tutorial is based on first hand experience on the PostgreSQL Extension Packaging System both as a user and a developer. It’s a series of practical use cases where using extensions will simplify your life a lot, and each of those practical use case is using real world data (thanks to pgloader).
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.
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.
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!
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.
