SF PUG for November 2019


Thank you to Neustar for hosting!

Join us on November 19, 2019 for two presentations!

1. "PostgreSQL for SQL Server DBAs" with Chandra Sekhar Pathivada. The demand for polyglot DBAs, proficient with more than one database, is a common feature of current job descriptions. We'll discuss how knowledge of SQL Server helps to learn PostgreSQL.

Chandra is a PMP and AWS Certified Solutions Architect, currently working with Datavail Corporation as a Senior Cloud Database Architect. Chandra has around 18 years of experience on a broad range of databases, which include PostgreSQL, SQL Server,MySQL, and Redshift.

2. "Postgres 12—Now That It's Here, What Do I Do With It?" with Christophe Pettus. PostgreSQL 12 was released on October 3. While the release report tells us what changes to expect, how do you actually incorporate them into your work?

Christophe has been using Postgres since the 7.2 days. He consults on all sorts of database and application things as CEO of PostgreSQL Experts, Inc.

6:30 PM Doors open for socializing and food.
