Among a lot of other changes, the year 2020 brings Online Conferences to us. In the Postgres community too we now record our talks at home and send a video file to be playedto a virtual audience, and sometimes shared later in a platform online. So this year I did participate in Postgres Vision 2020 where I did deliver a talk about The Art of PostgreSQL. This a talk all about the book that I have written and self-publish at The Art of PostgreSQL: learn how to turn thousands of lines of code into simple SQL queries.



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.
