A while back, 2ndQuadrant notified a few of us that we should get more involved in Postgres Development in some capacity. Being as I’ve essentially fallen off the map in corresponding with the mailing lists in general, it would be a good way to get back into the habit. But wait! Don’t we want more […]
The world of PostgreSQL continues to grow stronger by the year! Last week we saw it all come together at PostgresConf US 2018 in Jersey City. The conference was held to promote awareness and usage of PostgreSQL through tutorials and case-studies, as well as providing the opportunity to listen first hand to some of the […]
Last week saw the 3rd event in as many years in Singapore, and yet this time something was very different. For the last 2 years, we had been conducting the conference as a PostgreSQL track with FOSSASIA. This year, we were able to pull off an entirely independent, 2-day event completely focused on PostgreSQL! The event kicked […]
Some years ago, I prophesized that PostgreSQL would win in the end, and that we would be able to tell because there would be “Microsoft PostgreSQL”. I am happy to report that has now happened. Microsoft PostgreSQL database service on Azure was announced recently. Of course, that was just a metaphor for “a.n.other big company”, […]
…and why I’m glad I did. It’s not all technical… Who knew?! Last year, Pycon7 was held right about the time I joined 2ndQuadrant. Seeing as I was new to the technology AND the Italian language (note: there was an English track), I opted out of attending. Well, after attending Pycon8, I can say that […]

This year, the ITPUG (Italian Postgres User Group) organized PGDay in Prato, my hometown and city where the association was born, although most of the members are from outside of the Tuscany region. It was my pleasure to contribute to the community by sharing my professional experience. I gave a talk about PostgreSQL on Network File System, […]
The latest version of PostgreSQL 9.6 is planned to be released later today, bringing with it some much anticipated features and updates. As the most advanced open source database, PostgreSQL strives to release a major version roughly once every year. With an active and collaborative community, this PostgreSQL release boasts impressive features and updates thanks […]
Last week, 2ndQuadrant‘s Gabriele Bartolini was privileged to speak at IBM Italia’s Open Innovation event in Milan, Italy. At this event, IBM highlighted the strengths of open source such as flexibility, continuous innovation, and a collaborative community. With the impact of open source growing rapidly on business decisions, members of the open source and PostgreSQL […]
Over at pgsql-general, Bráulio Bhavamitra asks: I wonder if there is any plans to move postgresql entirely to a columnar store (or at least make it an option), maybe for version 10? This is a pretty interesting question. Completely replacing the current row-based store wouldn’t be a good idea: it has served us extremely well […]
