After the summer break the Brighton PostgreSQL meetup restarts with the monthly technical talks. This time is my round again. I’ll speak on how to scale the backup and recovery on large postgres installations. Actually this is the talk I’ve submitted to the european pgconf. I made the talk in a storytelling form in order to avoid to bore the audience to the death. The talk should be quite entertaining with explanation of the issues solved by the DBA over the years.
I’ve been busy recently and I failed to update on the last meetup news. I apologise for that. We had a very interesting meetup in January. Alexey Bashtanov explained how the grouping works in postgres and how to improve or even re implement in C the grouping functions. On the meetup page there are the pictures from the meeting. The presentation’s recording is available thereand the slides are free to download on slideshare there.
This second meetup went very well. The audience was interested and we had fun time thanks to the beer and pizzas offered alongside with the venue by our sponsor brandwatch. Here a couple of pictures from the meetup. The recording worked much better than the previous time, here’s the presentation’s video. We’ll meet again shortly for a nice beer. Next technical talk will be probably in January.
