Grant Holly – What’s new in PostgreSQL 11 (


Postgres container workflows

When: 6-8pm Thursday March 15, 2018

Ahoy database folk!  Time for another meetup and more container chit chat.  Yeah yeah, you, like me, have heard that you shouldn’t run databases in containers.  Well without throwing all caution to the wind, I’m hoping to show you guys some container workflows with Postgres that I’ve been using lately.  We’ll talk a bit about why you haven’t been running databases in containers, then walk through some development work flows with Postgres, and lastly look at options for deploying and running persistent databases in containers.


Hi, its me Grant Holly.  I work at Iovation on the data science and analytics team wrangling our data into visualizations and machine learning models.  I live in SE, play in bands, and am a learning machine.



Our meeting will still be held at iovation, but now on the 3rd floor of the US Bancorp Tower at 111 SW 5th (5th & Oak). It’s right on the Green & Yellow Max lines.  For access to the 3rd floor of the plaza, please either take the lobby stairs to the third floor or take the plaza elevator (near Subway and Rabbit’s Cafe) to the third floor. There will be signs directing you to the meeting room.

PDXPUG is moving location

Our host Iovation ( has recently moved office locations, so we’re packing up and moving to the new location.  Where we used to meet on the 32nd floor of the US Bank Corp Tower, we’re now meeting on the third floor.  You could say that’s pretty close by.  Right now we are working on getting a new room for the group hopefully with more space.  We’re looking forward to 2018 in the new digs.  See you guys at the next meeting!
