Common difficulties for new PostgreSQL users - and what we can do about them

Date: 2014-10-24
Time: 10:50–11:40
Room: Medici I
Level: Intermediate

In a mature community it is common for experienced members to lose sight of how much knowledge they take for granted and forget the difficulties they had when they were just getting started. We were all newbies once, and new users have a lot to teach us if we find ways to listen.

I listen to new users a lot, mainly on Stack Overflow and on pgsql-general, and would like to share some of the things I've learned from them about their early experiences with PostgreSQL.

User feedback has driven many improvements to PostgreSQL. Lets find the time to make some more.
