What a great meeting last night! Made me feel a bit better about missing PgConf.US 🙂
We had a good turnout, too; several first-timers showed up, some hauling themselves all the way in from Nike & Intel.
Thanks to Eric Ferreira, AWS Database Engineer, and Tony Gibbs, AWS Solutions Architect, for coming all the way down from Seattle to give this excellent talk. Eric is the originator of Redshift (it’s based on Pg 8.0.4), and he shared with us some of the features & why he made some of the decision he did.
Special thanks goes to Veronika Megler, RDS Professional Services team, for proposing the topic and arranging for Eric & Tony to come on down to PDX.
We’re already working on a return visit for late summer, so if you missed this meeting, you will get another chance.
