"Look It Up: PostgreSQL Indexes" with Christophe Pettus

Tuesday, June 18, 2019 - 18:30
SF Bay Area PostgreSQL Meetup
San Francisco

Thank you to Salesforce for hosting!

Join us on June 18, 2019 as Christophe Pettus presents, "Look It Up: PostgreSQL Indexes".

PostgreSQL has a huge range of possible index types above the traditional B-Tree: GiST, GIN, SP-GiST, BRIN, Hash… and some that aren't even part of the core.

When do you use them? What are they good for? How well do they perform? This talk goes over the collection of exotic animals that is PostgreSQL's indexes, along with how to use them properly.

Christophe has been using Postgres since the 7.2 days. He consults on all sorts of database and application things through PostgreSQL Experts, Inc.

6:30 PM Doors open for socializing and food.
7:00 PM Announcements, speaker introduction, presentation, Q&A.
8:15 PM Closing announcements, wrap up.
8:30 PM Event ends.
