I joined Jason Swett recently on his podcast and had a great time. The podcast topic was PostgreSQL Table Partitioning and how developers can use it. We also discussed the 2024 edition of Sin City Ruby, a conference Jason organizes and is running for the second time next year.
The conference will be held in March of 2024 in Las Vegas.
I attended in 2022, but this time around I’m honored to announce that I’ll be speaking at Sin City Ruby 2024. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to create a great presentation involving PostgreSQL and of course Ruby.
Sin City Ruby 2024
Sin City Ruby was a new small single-track conference launched by Jason in 2022. I attended and had a great time. I met Jason there and a number of other Ruby programmers that I’ve stayed in touch with.
Smaller single-track conferences with a lot of time in between sessions are great for meeting people and networking. 😁
I’m looking forward to the 2024 edition and meeting more people! The speaker line-up looks really good.
This is the second time being a guest on Code With Jason. Last year we met for Episode 160 - PostgreSQL with Andrew Atkinson after I’d spoke at RailsConf 2022 and discussed some topics related to that presentation.
Some of the topics we discussed are below.
- What is PostgreSQL table partitioning?
- Why and when would someone use partitioning?
- PGDay Chicago conference
- My blog post PGDay Chicago 2023 Conference
- PgUS Association
- Presentation from PGDay Chicago on Table Partitioning
- Partitioning mostly done by DBAs in the past
- Using pgslice
- Table locks
- My book (in development) High Performance PostgreSQL for Rails
