Postgres community panel: Upgradability

Date: 2022-10-26
Time: 15:00–15:50
Room: Berlin 1
Level: Beginner

An open discussion with Postgres community members around the topic of upgradability.

We will be looking at the PostgreSQL development cycle (backward compatibility, addition of new features) and why it makes sense to upgrade Postgres regularly. Also, why minor release upgrades just work, and what to test when performing a major version upgrade. Finally we will examine what works great or better than other database systems, but also some pain points and what could be improved in future releases.

Key points to take away:

  1. The PostgreSQL development cycle
  2. Why you should upgrade regularly
  3. Minor version upgrades
  4. Major version upgrades and what to test
  5. What works great or better than other DBs
  6. Pain points and suggested improvements
