Meetup wrap up

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.

Meetup live hangout

Three days to go for the next Brighton PostgreSQL meetup. I’ll run a live hangout of the talk. You can join the event there. https://plus.google.com/events/cge4691km5qm8euj4erkcp7jecs The record will become available on youtube shortly after the talk’s end.

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.
