Schedule - Nordic PGDay 2020

PostgreSQL through the eyes of an Oracle DBA

Date: 2020-03-24
Time: 13:05–13:55
Room: Ballroom

I began my journey into the world of PostgreSQL less than 2 years ago, bringing with me 20 years’ experience as an Oracle DBA. I’m often asked “which do you like best, PostgreSQL or Oracle ?” but I prefer the question “what has it been like to learn PostgreSQL as an Oracle DBA?”. Rather than attempt a direct comparison of the two databases, I share my experience of “converting” to PostgreSQL; the things I’ve learnt along the way, the surprises, the frustrations and some of the things I’ve come to love about PostgreSQL.
