How not to screw up when building HA cluster
You just set up your first PostgreSQL cluster, created a database schema, loaded some data, did some fine tuning of configuration. Now you want to make your cluster highly available. Unfortunately, PostgreSQL doesn't offer built-in automatic failover, but luckily for us, there are plenty of external tools for that. As a next logical step you start choosing a tool, and... you already doing it wrong, because first you have to define SLA, RTO, and RPO. In this talk I am going to cover most of the common mistakes people do when setting up a highly available cluster.
Hacking with Postgres 11 - pg_threads
My presentation is about writing extensions in Postgres. I have written pg_threads that implements simplified POSIX thread API inside Postgres database. It adds a new powerful abstraction giving database developers new opportunities for writing parallel code thus taking advantage of multicore CPUs. There is an extra API for transactional and non-transactional IPC between threads. I also have an example application that takes advantage of this new API that scales linearly even across 2 nodes. The presentation is with live working demo using vagrant project with 2 VMs running Ubuntu and 2 Postgres 11 databases.

Conferences like this give people a personal feeling for the software. You can understand why people are passioned about it. They get confidence in using it and confidence that the software is gonna be around for a long time. The conference has people who is responsible for and designing Postgres. And I really think it excites to continue using Postgres.
This is a very technically oriented conference. There is a lot of knowledge sharing happening. A lot of really talented people. And it is also for us a great opportunity to tap into the Russian market, a very interesting market for Postgres.
