SQL and MongoDB: how PostgreSQL brought them together

Track: Internals

Asya Kamsky

April 20, 2016, 10:00AM - 10:50AM


Have you heard that MongoDB 3.2 shipped a connector for Reporting tools that's actually PostgreSQL?

This talk will provide some history, challenges of bringing together unstructured data with traditional structured tools, as well as some examples of technical obstacles that have to be overcome to bring the users what they need.

About the Speaker

Asya has spent over 20 years working with databases, mostly at small companies. For the past four years she's worked at MongoDB in multiple technical roles.
