Schedule - PGConf.EU 2023

The non-tech mind and PostgreSQL

Date: 2023-12-13
Time: 11:10–12:00
Room: Zenit

A tech talk delivered by a total newbie to the PostgreSQL world. This beginner talk will look at how to make PostgreSQL relevant to people whose main line of thinking may not be technological.

PostgreSQL is awesome - we can probably all agree on that. But how do the non-techies among us learn to understand and appreciate it? How do we understand how it can be used so that we can become evangelists even though we can’t build the databases ourselves?

After this talk, participants will be able to answer the following questions: how does a non-tech person think, see and understand databases? how can I make database normalization relevant and approachable to people who are not immersed in this world?
