Conference Schedule - pgDay Paris 2020
PostgreSQL through the eyes of an Oracle DBA
Time: 12:00 - 12:30
I began my journey into the world of PostgreSQL less than 2 years ago, bringing with me 20 years’ experience as an Oracle DBA. I’m often asked “which do you like best, PostgreSQL or Oracle?” but I prefer the question “What has it been like to learn PostgreSQL as an Oracle DBA?”. Rather than attempt a direct comparison of the two databases, I share my experience of “converting” to PostgreSQL; the things I’ve learnt along the way, the surprises, the frustrations and some of the things I’ve come to love about PostgreSQL.
