DataLayer Exposed: Joshua Drake & PostgreSQL: The Center of Your Data Universe


Start your Monday on a high note and catch up on videos from this year's DataLayer Conference. This week we're highlighting Joshua Drake, from Command Prompt. JD met us in Austin for DataLayer and presented on PostgreSQL as the center of your data universe.

Next to take stage at DataLayer was Joshua Drake who is one of the founders of United States PostgreSQL, the SPI-PostgreSQL Liaison and a Chair for PgConf US, the largest PostgreSQL conference in North America.

It should come as no surprise that JD presented on PostgreSQL. JD showed off some of Postgres' power and gave a powerful case for why it's a pivotal component for many people's stacks.

Be sure to tell us what you think using hashtag #DataLayerConf and check back next Monday for the next talk at DataLayerConf.

We're in the planning stages for DataLayer 2018 right now so, if you have an idea for a talk, start fleshing that out. We'll have a CFP, followed by a blind submission review, and then select our speakers, who we'll fly to DataLayer to present. Sounds fun, right?
