PostgreSQL hacker tips

Date: 2023-12-15
Time: 13:40–14:30
Room: Zenit

Hacking PostgreSQL can be challenging for newcomers. This presentation covers a set of tips that have accumulated in my development environment when it comes to do something, basically anything, with the core PostgreSQL engine. From the environment used to more internal must-haves, this presentation can be helpful for newcomers, more advanced users, as well as maintainers of extensions or forks.

This is a summary of 15 years of experience hacking on PostgreSQL, being in the role of a patch author, bug fixer, reviewer or just committer (since 2018 for the last part).
