New York!

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!

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.
