Using pg_variables as temporary tables

PostgreSQL provides possibility to create temporary tables. Though a temporary table is accessible only to a single session and is removed at the end of the session, all information about it is stored in the system catalogs of PostgreSQL. This is related to several issues, which make it difficult or impossible to use temporary tables in some cases. There are attempts to solve this feature, including in our company. But they have not yet succeeded, mainly because of the PostgreSQL engine. In the talk I want to tell about simple and small pg_variables extension. It allows you to create table variables along with scalar ones. I will tell how it can replace temporary tables, what advantages and disadvantages it has.

    Asynchronous Python and PostgreSQL Using asyncpg

    Python may not be the fastest programming language on the CPU, but its fast and easy development saves a lot of costs between the keyboard and the chair. Since database clients spend most of their time waiting for a response from the database server, Python's asynchronous functionality available in the recent versions (3.5+) may help to optimize the application's runtime considerably by working on something else while server's response is being prepared. The asynchronous interface between Python and PostgreSQL is called "asyncpg". In the workshop we'll explore this library and write a short application using some of its useful features.

    What should we expect from PostgreSQL 12?

    PostgreSQL 12 Feature Freeze is scheduled for April 2019, which didn't come yet. But general shapes of upcoming release are already visible. In this talk I'll consider patches already committed to PostgreSQL 12 as well as patches, which would be committed very likely. I'll talk with special passion about SQL/JSON, Merge, pluggable table access methods and zheap.

    Autovacuum: what can we learn if we read the code instead of the documentation

    In this talk we will have a look at the details of autovacuum's implementation and see what kind of practical implications they have. The talk will also provide a short overview of patches for autovacuum that are currently being considered by the developer community and that may be included in newer versions of PostgreSQL.
