Writing a foreign data wrapper
Date: Oct. 24, 2012
Writing a foreign data wrapper (FDW) for PostgreSQL seems easy. However, there are many pitfalls.
This talk will cover experiences from writing a FDW for Informix and will discuss differences between 9.1 and 9.2 APIs, data type mapping and conversion, optimizer support and performance related topics. Interested attendees will get an overview on how to tackle their own FDW and (hopefully) learn something to do it better ;)
