Unless you were in Sydney for linux.conf.au 2018 last week you probably didn’t see my talk Geographically distributed multi-master replication with PostgreSQL and BDR. Luckily for you it’s on archive.org and YouTube.
If you’re interested in multi-master replication of any sort, even non-PostgreSQL-based multi-master, it should be worth taking a look. The talk could’ve been better titled “Understand Multi-Master and if it’s right for you” or “Physics is Mean”.
Comments and questions are welcome – @craig2ndq.
You can also just read the slides (pdf), but they’re really intended to support an explanation, not to stand alone.
Huge thanks to Next Day Video for the amazing work they did on the recordings, to the conference conveners, the organizing team and volunteers.
I really enjoyed at linux.conf.au. It was a lovely community conference that has kept its relaxed culture and soul despite a growing base of business-focused professional attendees.
I would like to give a shout out to a few outstanding speakers while I’m here:
- Karen Sandler – Keynote: Six Years Later, or Hey, did you ever get the source code to that thing in your heart?
- Lilly Ryan – Don’t Look Back in Anger: Wildman Whitehouse and the Great Failure of 1858
- … and some great Lightning talks
