Streaming replication at the brighton postgresql meetup

November 27th at 19.00 GMT I’ll talk at theBrighton PostgreSQL meetup. This time the group chosen the streaming replication as topic. The talk will cover the PostgreSQL write ahead logging and the crash recovery process. The audience will learn how to setup a standby server using the streaming replication and how to troubleshoot it. Please RSVP here.

The next meetup - PostgreSQL query planning

Like previously said, the next Brighton PostgreSQL meetup will be September 25th at 7 pm BST. The topic chosen by the member is the query planning and execution in PostgreSQL. I will do the presentation exploring the various steps a query passes through from the client to the execution. I’ll also explain how to read the execution plan and why sometimes the executor seems to ignore the indices put in place for speeding up the operations.

The sea elephants

Friday 14th August we kicked off the Brighton PostgreSQL Meetup. We had a nice evening with cool people all togheter discussing about PostgreSQL and how we can run effectively the meetup. We decided to have a regular monthly meetup hosted around Brighton, possibly, by companies or any suitable venue. The next meetup will be the 25th of September and this time there will be some PostgreSQL talks. The general interest favours the standby servers and the streaming replication.
