Writing a Postgres Driver

Date: 2015-10-28
Time: 17:20–18:10
Room: Palais I-III
Level: Intermediate

The best way to learn a new programming language is often jumping straight in and starting a project. And what better project is there than a Postgres driver?

In this session we’ll take a code-driven deep-dive on the ins-and-outs of writing a LibPQ based Postgres driver for Crystal with, a new programing language. We’ll cover the evolution of moving from the easy to understand text protocol to the more efficient binary protocol. And of course, we’ll learn how to use LibPQ and a bit about Crystal.
