Peter Geoghegan, one of the major developers of the new "JSONB" binary, indexable JSON type for PostgreSQL 9.4, will be in town and will guide SFPUG members in a "deep dive" into the new technology, including:

• Both the new JSONB type and the old JSON type input and output JSON, so what's the difference?

• What new features does it offer?

• How is the new data type structured, and how does it work?

• How do you index JSONB?

• What things remain unimplemented?

Before the main event, we will have a Lightning Talk by Eric Ongerth: Running PostgreSQL in a Docker Container

Food and Drink, as well as Peter's travel, are sponsored by Heroku ( It is being hosted by SwitchFly (
