Multicorn: writing FDWs in Python

Multicorn is a generic Foreign Data Wrapper which goal is to simplify development of FDWs by writing them in Python.

We will see:

  • what is an FDW what Multicorn is trying to solve how to use it, with a brief tour of the FDWs shipping with Multicorn.
  • how to write your own FDW in python, including the new 9.5 IMPORT FOREIGN SCHEMA api.
  • the internals: what Multicorn is doing for you behind the scenes, and what it doesn't

After a presentation of FDWs in general, and what the Multicorn extension really is, we will take a look at some of the FDWs bundled with Multicorn.

Then, a complete tour of the Multicorn API will teach you how to write a FDW in python, including the following features:

  • using the table definition
  • WHERE clauses push-down
  • output columns restrictions
  • influencing the planner
  • writing to a foreign table
  • ORDER BY clauses pushdown
  • transaction management

This will be a hands-on explanation, with code snippets allowing you to build your own FDW in python from scratch.

    Experience in using PostgreSQL as the database platform 1C: Enterprise 8.1 to 8.3

    In late 2006, the 1C company has implemented to work 1C:Enterprise platform with DBMS PostgreSQL, which can operate under the operating systems Windows or Linux. The talks will attempt to summarize the experience of sharing the platform 1C:Enterprise with PostgreSQL database since 2008. Consideration will be given a few success stories, technical features of the work are examples of specific tasks, offers advice on selecting and cons. The talk may be of interest to employees of companies considering the option of using PostgreSQL for the 1C:Enterprise, DBA, professionals interested in the possibility of extensibility PostgreSQL.

    Migration to PostgreSQL : reasons... and consequences

    The talk will be articulated around all the traditional arguments to "how chose PostgreSQL over other choices in the database domain"... But also, and that's quite new in the comunity, what are the consequences of this choice. Because the PostgreSQL adoption brings adoption of other things like Linux, but also, Open Source thinking, the fast pace of PostgreSQL will command new methods of validation the company must adapt to... etc.

    Index internals

    PostgreSQL includes several index types: GiST, SP-GiST, GIN, and of course, the regular B-tree. DBAs are familiar with using each of these for specific use cases, GIN for full-text search, GiST for geometrical data, and so on, but how do they work internally? What makes them suitable for the cases they're typically used for?

    In this presentation, I will walk through the internal structure of each of these index types, explaining what strengths and weaknesses each one of them have.

    PostgreSQL and backups

    A backup is something that no Postgres deployments should go without as it gives the insurance to get back a deployment on its feet should a disaster strike.

    In this talk we will discuss why backups are essential in any sane PostgreSQL deployments (this seems obvious) and what are the different options available to define and set up a good backup strategy. On top of that is discussed how the future of backups would need to be handled, particularly regarding differential backups that gain in popularity among users with large deployments.
