- Hi! Could you briefly introduce yourself?
I am a career changer into tech after years of dealing with data on the collection and user interface sides of things.
- How do you engage with the PostgreSQL community?
For all of 2018 I recruited volunteer speakers and spaces for the NYC PostgreSQL User Group. I have attended PostgreSQL EU as well as PostgreSQL Asia and volunteered at the PostgreSQL US conference. In 2018 I served as a volunteer mentor for the PostgreSQL Google Code-In, which works to help pre-college learners contribute to the Open Source community.
- Have you enjoyed previous pgDay Paris or other PostgreSQL Europe conferences, either as attendee or as speaker?
This is my first pgDay Paris experience, and after a great time at PGConf.EU in Lisbon in October I know it will be a great event.
- What will your talk be about, exactly? Why this topic?
My talk is a positive exploration of the benefits and exciting challenges that arise from working with other people, especially people from backgrounds that may be different from our own.
- What is the audience for your talk?
My talk is for everyone because nobody works in a vacuum. If you have coworkers, clients, vendors, or even neighbors in a co-working space, you are working with other people.
- What existing knowledge should the attendee have in order to follow your talk?
Know who you work with and who you want to work with.
- Which missing feature would you most like to see in PostgreSQL?
If I say something is missing, I will learn tomorrow that it is already in PostgreSQL!
- Thank you!
