Why Uber Was (Mostly) Wrong
Time: 13:30 - 14:20
In July 2016, Uber published a blog post explaining why they moved from PostgreSQL to MySQL. They described what they thought of as serious limitations in PostgreSQL that motivated their switch.
Were they right?
We'll go through each of their points and talk about how they may have not quite understood what PostgreSQL can do, and how they could have mitigated the issues they described.
And we'll talk about where they had valid points, and how PostgreSQL might evolve to address them.
