Past, Present, and Pachyderm

I’m currently in Germany, having given my talk on Postgres 9.3 at PGConf DE (and last week at PGConf EU).

Prior to that, I recently gave a talk at the All Things Open conference entitled “Past, Present, and Pachyderm”. The original idea for the talk was to give a highlight of new features coming in Postgres 9.3, however we took a slightly different approach for the ATO2013 crowd, providing some history and discussion around the Postgres project, as well as taking a look at some ideas about future development and direction.

The talk went quite well, and I think really struck a good balance for speaking to a less Postgres focused crowd than the 9.3 talks I have given at Postgres specific conferences.
