PGConf Local: Seattle Program
presented by Joshua D. Drake
When you are optimizing PostgreSQL it is usually maintenance that goes by the wayside. How do we fix autovacuum? Where did all of this bloat come from? Why am I getting IO spikes? How do I get RDS to behave?! Why are commits so slow on replication? The answer to all of these questions is understanding the relationship between proper Postgres maintenance and performance. Join us for a 3 hour jau...more 09:00 - 12:00 Redwood Trainings
A step by step guide
presented by Jim Mlodgenski
Whether it is for cost reasons or simply convince, many people are migrating their databases from Oracle to PostgreSQL. Depending on your application making the switch can be extremely simple or impossible. This tutorial will teach how to identify the differences and how to successfully migrate an application. We will walk through a sample migration using the AWS tool-chain which includes SCT a...more 09:00 - 12:00 Willow Trainings

PostgreSQL Semantic Search
presented by QUAN-HA LE and Mainur Rahman
Web search engines often federate many user queries to relevant structured databases. For example, a recruitment-related query might be federated to a jobseekers-and-employers database containing their resumes and skills. The relevant structured data items are then returned to the user along with web search results. Though each structured database is searched in isolation, the search often prod...more 11:00 - 11:50 Willow dev

As a data scientists we get to hear the saying “Garbage in Garbage out” all the time. This might be from our comrades or the DBAs that maintain much of the data we receive. Somehow, this tends to feel more like teams throwing data quality issues over the fence. Rather than developing methods to improve data. No one really says too much about how to keep your systems clean. It is even harder to ...more 11:00 - 11:50 Issaquah Data Science

The Implications of the Code We Write
presented by Michael Sacks
As technology becomes a bigger part of our lives, so does our power to affect people’s lives: not always for the better.
Technology can be a life saver, (i.e. the Maps app), but there has been an increase in cases where technology has done irrefutable damage to its users. Despite intending to connect people and serve as a positive resource, technology side effects that must be addressed.

Using customer stories and experiences including live demos, we will walk through best practices ...more 12:00 - 12:50 Redwood ops
SQL Auto-caching without the programming
presented by Roland Lee and Erik Brandsberg
Configuring caches is complex. Engineering teams spend a lot of resources building and maintaining cache subsystems. It requires manual intervention (i.e. what to cache and invalidate) which is risky. Now there is a solution that provides granular SQL analytics while safely auto-caching into Postgres.
Heimdall Data intelligently caches, invalidates and synchronizes across cache nodes. No mor...more 12:00 - 12:50 Willow dev

Cognitive/AI systems process knowledge that is far too complex for current databases. They require more expressive data schemas and intelligent query languages to provide a strong abstraction over complex data and their relationships. In this talk, we will discuss how GRAKN.AI, a distributed hyper-relational database, enables knowledge-oriented systems to work with complex data that serves as a...more 14:30 - 15:20 Issaquah Big Data

More companies are now providing managed PostgreSQL services. We look at some basic features of managed PostgreSQL services in the cloud. Understanding such services allow us to better use these services for our applications. We also look at typical best practices for the normal DBA activities on these managed services.15:40 - 16:30 Issaquah AWS / Cloud
TimescaleDB, packaged as a PostgresSQL extension
presented by Matvey Arye
Today everything is instrumented, generating more and more time-series data streams that need to be monitored and analyzed. When it comes to storing this data, many developers often start with some well-trusted system like PostgreSQL, but when their data hits a certain scale, give up its query power and ecosystem by migrating to some NoSQL or other "modern" time-series architecture. They face t...more 15:40 - 16:30 Redwood ops

A detailed look at how vacuum works
presented by Jim Nasby
The use of Multi-Version Concurrency Control (MVCC) is perhaps one of the most powerful features PostgreSQL has to offer, but it can be a source of confusion for new and experienced users alike. In this talk we will provide an in-depth walkthrough of why Postgres needs to vacuum and what vacuum does.

In this session we will cover a number of the way that you can tune PostgreSQL to better handle high write workloads. We will cover both application and database tuning methods as each type can have substantial benefits but can also interact in unexpected ways when you are operating at scale. On the application side we will look at write batching, use of GUID's, general index structure, the c...more 16:40 - 17:30 Issaquah ops
