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…
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.
