PDXPUG: January Lab Next Week: postgres_fdw

When: Thu Jan 29, 6pm-8pm
Where: Renewable Funding, 400 SW 6th Ave

We’ll go over Foreign Data Wrappers, focusing on the Postgres FDW.

Our labs are casual, attendee-led affairs with no agenda set in advance. The goal is to share what we know & learn together.

Show up with a couple of Pg databases – they can be on the same cluster or different ones, doesn’t really matter. One of them should have at least one table with data in it.

We do need to know who’s coming so we can notify building security, so please sign up in advance here.

Grab dinner at the carts & come on over!

PDXPUG: January meeting next week

When: 6-8pm Thu Jan 15, 2015
Where: Iovation
Who: Gabrielle Roth
What: RDS Postgres

Amazon integrated Postgres into their general Relational Database Services (RDS) offerings July 1, 2014. RDS offers automatic failover, scalability, and easy configuration, plus Amazon handles all the patching and upgrades for you! Their SDK supports many languages and includes a robust CLI, if you want to automate management of your deployments. They also support several popular Postgres extensions.

Of course, since it’s a managed service, you can’t do everything you might expect or want to. In this talk, I’ll discuss the fun, the quirky, and the downright maddening features I’ve discovered working with production RDS deployments. Come find out what it’s like to use RDS Postgres day-to-day.

Our meeting will be held at Iovation, on the 32nd floor of the US Bancorp Tower at 111 SW 5th (5th & Oak). It’s right on the Green & Yellow Max lines. Underground bike parking is available in the parking garage; outdoors all around the block in the usual spots. No bikes in the office, sorry!

Elevators open at 5:45 and building security closes access to the floor at 6:30.

We’ll go to Huber’s for after-meeting socializing.

See you there!
