Last week happens the biggest European PostgreSQL of the year in Berlin, which is an event where you meet the developers of the PostgreSQL Community with a lots of good technical presentations.

Tuesday evening we started with the traditional Schweizer Abend Dinner with the Swiss community. We had a special guest in our table with Frits Hoogland how comes from Holland/Netherlands. Fritz did also the switch from Oracle to PostgreSQL some years ago, and works today for Yugabyte. The dinner was also the opportunity for us to discuss about the current IT trends.

Wednesday Morning the conference started and it was amazing how many were there. Below a picture of the plenum session for the start of the conference.

dbi services was present at the conference with 1 workshop and 2 Presentations

Daniel Westermann – 1 Day Workshop PostgreSQL DBA Essentials

Julia Gugel – Hero + Hero = SuperHero !

Daniel Westermann – TOAST, for breakfast and compression

As you can see the both sessions from Daniel and Julia was well occupied


This event was also an opportunity for dbi-services to present our new open source product that we just launched one month ago, the YaK. The discussion around it during the 3 days was very interesting and I will came back with a lot’s of new development idea/proposals to enhance the product.

I had also the opportunity to present the product in the Sponsoring Track from the Event

Hervé Schweitzer – YaK – The Next-Gen Multi-Platform PostgreSQL Database Managed Services

Last not least – dbi services booth

I will also thanks Martin Moll which is at dbi-services the Region Manager from Zürich, and who managed very well the booth during the 3 days which is not an easy stuff.
