pgDay Paris 4th edition happens March 15, 2018! And the Call for Papers is still open, as it closes with the year: the submission deadline is December 31st, 2017.

As I’ve been organizing the first edition of pgDay Paris back in 2015, this very conference is special to me! It’s been an amazing experience launching a new PostgreSQL conference…

Hats off to Magnus without whom the first edition would never have happened, and to Vik of course, who took over the organisation of the conference!

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.

Le 21 avril prochain se tient le premier pgDay Paris: une conférence PostgreSQL d’une journée complète. Il s’agit de 8 conférences sur votre base de données préférée par des conférencers internationaux, incluant des retours d’expérience et une analyse de l’utilisation des derniers développements en cours dans notre projet de base de données préféré.

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).

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. À l’heure où le NoSQL passe de mode doucement, il est temps de se poser les bonnes questions vis à vis des technologies de bases de données à utiliser, comment et pourquoi. PostgreSQL entre de plein droit dans la case des SGBD relationnels classiques, aussi nous commencerons par étudier ce que de ces outils apportent.
