• Self-Driving Databases & My Pregnant Wife: The Hard Parts — Tour 2019

    Andy lives a database-centric lifestyle. That means that he spends most of his time either thinking about databases, writing about databases, using databases, teaching others about databases, or programming databases. Truly his body is a vessel for which to conduct database research. One day his beloved wife told him that if Stonebraker can have two kids than he can at least have one. This logic seemed to make sense to him at the time. And now she's pregnant. The idea of having to be responsible for a dependent is stressing Andy out. As such, he is going on a coast-to-coast speaking tour to discuss the challenges of research on self-driving databases while simultaneously trying to be a responsible life partner.
