I have been working with and on PostgreSQL for many years.


A walking tour of PostgreSQL
Code On Screen Breakout Session

I'll talk about: the origins and history of the PostgreSQL project; how it fits into the space of databases; how it fits into the space of open source projects; key architectural features, strengths and weakness; selected special topics found in different parts of an RDBMS; and how I got involved, from long time user to scratching-an-itch stage through to full time work on architectural features (this part might will include some code on screen).
