PDXPUG
Free Geek

PostgreSQL Users' Group monthly meeting. Followed by refreshments at the Lucky Lab.

Topic: Visual Planner Presenter: Tom Raney, PSU Where: FreeGeek, 1731 SE 10th Avenue, Portland, OR When: 7pm, September 18, 2008

Tom Raney will be presenting the Visual Planner, a GUI tool written in Java that enables the user to peek inside the PostgreSQL planner's decision making process. The tool shows all plans that were evaluated including the plan that was picked for execution. Tom worked on this during Google Summer of Code, and credits Dr. Len Shapiro, a professor at Portland State University and PDXPUG regular, as a great help.

Tom showed off his tool during OSCON and has gotten some feedback from community members on it. He's working up a test example that should appeal to DBAs, and I'll link directly to the source code once he's got it ready.

This work also involves a patch to PostgreSQL, which should be available soon!

After the meeting, retire to the Lucky Lab for refreshments!

XPDX October: Unit Test Your Database
PSU Business Accelerator

David Wheeler will be giving his "Unit Test Your Database" talk. It was well-received at Open Source Bridge; now he's giving it to an audience of Agile practitioners.

We’re all used to unit testing our applications by now. The Extreme and Agile programming movements have done a great deal to promote unit testing, to the extent that many of us are now dependent on tests to assure that our applications work reliably. But how often do we test the database underlying our applications? Given that the database, as the repository for all of the knowledge and data for an application, just might be the single most important part of that application, the time for standardized database unit testing has come.

This talk promotes the practice of writing and running unit tests that directly test the schema, storage, and functionality of application databases. Following a review of the available PostgreSQL unit testing frameworks, we’ll review examples of testing tables, views, columns, constraints, indexes, triggers, and functions. The idea is to promote complete test coverage every aspect of a database, independent of application unit tests, to ensure reliably canonical data integrity.

Pizza and networking at 6:30pm, 7pm talk, beer afterwards.

PDXTech4Good May Meetup
Lucky Labrador Brew Pub

At last, we have confirmed a May Meetup topic!
Constituent Relationship Management Systems or Databases!

A good system for managing your clients, constituents, donors, and/or volunteers will ease your troubles away! Well...we're not sure that any database can be completely pain-free, there are some good solutions available for nonprofits but before a tool is decided upon, some essential questions must be asked. Join us on May 25, when Tompkins Spann will talk unbiased on how to determine your nonprofits' needs for data management and what you need to evaluate when choosing a CRM or database.

Then, you will have the opportunity to talk to Tompkins and others (we invite you to attend if you have a CRM solution to talk up!) about specific solutions and how they might integrate into your nonprofit's work flow.

We are proud to be bringing you this meetup in collaboration with the Portland Nonprofit Salesforce Users Group and Convio.

..............................................................................................................................


Tompkins is the Sr. Market Strategist for Convio focused exclusively on the Common Ground product, Convio’s CRM solution for nonprofits. He has worked for Convio (and formerly) GetActive for more than 5 years in various roles, from account services to product marketing. His experience working with nonprofits began when he exited the Peace Corps in 2000 to create his own 501c3. He then began working for a large advocacy-based organization in DC serving as the lead on all technology projects ranging from website strategy to database development. Tompkins has a passion for nonprofit-tech and truly enjoys helping organizations pick the right solutions and apply the right strategies to help further their mission.

Portland Perl Mongers: Relational DB vs Key-Value Store and Beyond
Free Geek

Panel: Selena Deckelmann, Igal Koshevoy, Jeff Lavallee, David Wheeler

This will be a panel discussion about the ups, downs, ins, and outs of relational, row, key-value, and hierarchical data stores (simplistic buzzwordiness: SQL vs NOSQL aka ACID CRUD.)

The panel will discuss parallelism, scale, data integrity, normalization, business logic, ORMs, and performance. Some of the following might be addressed:

  • why do you want a relational DB?
  • why do you not want a relational DB?
  • Membase, MongoDB, Redis, Cassandra
  • Tokyo Tyrant, CouchDB, old school K/V (zodb, bdb)
  • distinctions between "relational" and "row store"
  • how filesystem settings affect the database
  • how important is your data?
  • common errors in SQL schemas or usage
  • is count(*) supposed to be fast?
  • efficiency vs speed vs parallel cleverness
  • sharding
  • what is "scale" and do you need it?
  • massively denormalized, or massively normalized?
  • ORMs, materialized views, indexes, and the query planner
  • typical performance with small/large, simple/complex data sets

As always, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab.

UpdatePDX monthly meeting
Cloudability

ABOUT THE GROUP: With new databases springing up faster than new food carts this meetup aims to cut through the hype and disseminate knowledge from people who have been using, scaling, and getting-paged-by databases and other systems in production environments.

Meetups will be a presentation on someone's experience with a database or related technology in production preceded by 1 or 2 people giving 5 minute lightning talks on technologies they've just begun using and are excited about.

Hopefully a few months after giving a lightning talk the speaker will return to present on their experience as the main presentation.

If nothing else, come by to have a beer and share war stories with others trying to fight through the hype and keep their systems humming.

Please RSVP on the meetup site and sign up for the mailing list.

Portland Ruby Brigade monthly meeting
Robert Half Technology, 2nd Floor Conference Room

10gen: Intro to MongoDB and Schema Design

One of the challenges that comes with moving to MongoDB is figuring how to best model your data. While most developers have internalized the rules of thumb for designing schemas for RDBMSs, these rules don't always apply to MongoDB. The simple fact that documents can represent rich, schema-free data structures means that we have a lot of viable alternatives to the standard, normalized, relational model. Not only that, MongoDB has several unique features, such as atomic updates and indexed array keys, that greatly influence the kinds of schemas that make sense. Understandably, this begets good questions:

  • Are foreign keys permissible, or is it better to represent one-to- many relations withing a single document?
  • Are join tables necessary, or is there another technique for building out many-to-many relationships?
  • What level of denormalization is appropriate?
  • How do my data modeling decisions affect the efficiency of updates and queries?

In this session, we'll answer these questions and more, provide a number of data modeling rules of thumb, and discuss the tradeoffs of various data modeling strategies.

ABOUT THE GROUP: The Portland Ruby Brigade is a user group for Ruby programmers in the Portland Oregon area. Join other developers for presentations and discussions about Ruby, libraries, tools and techniques. The group usually meets on the first Tuesday of the month, "Ruby Tuesday".

Portland Riak Group: Intro to Yokozuna; Riak and Node.js at Coradine
AppFog HQ

Hi, and welcome to the Portland Riak Group.

There are plenty of Riak Users in the PDX area, so it's time we had an official meetup. The team at AppFog was gracious enough to loan their space for the inaugural meeting, and a few members of the Basho team will be on hand to deliver pizza, beer, and stickers.

Here are the talks we have lined up:

7:15

Next Generation Searching with Yokozuna

Eric Redmond; Engineer, Basho Technologies

Riak Search was created to expand Riak's query options. It's worked well enough the past couple years, but it's time to move forward. Yokozuna is the next generation of Riak search, built on the solid Distributed Solr platform. We'll see a preview of what Yokozuna does, what it's going to do, and how that's a marked improvement from the existing Riak Search.

8:00

Riak & Node.js: The Hunt for Cheap, Easy Nines

Nathan Aschbacher; Developer, Coradine

Portland-based Coradine makes an innovative aviation application that helps pilots the world over. Riak powers a lot of this application. Nathan Äschbacher, developer at Coradine, will take you through:

  • A quick history of our experience with Riak
  • How it came to be we opted to use it at Coradine
  • Some of the known hurdles we were going to have to overcome (like cloud deployment)
  • Some of the development issues we've encountered
  • Why Node.js was a good fit for us and interfacing with Riak
  • Abandoning Redis in favor of Riak Memory-store for caching and 2i

Portland Perl Mongers – Sane Database Change Management with Sqitch
Free Geek

speaker: David Wheeler

SQL change management is hard. Most “migration”-style implementations require opaque naming conventions, prefer DSLs that cover a fraction of SQL, and require duplication of code for simple changes to existing functions. Such does not have to be. And now it’s not

Introducing Sqitch, simple SQL change management that doesn’t suck. Sqitch doesn’t care what programming language your app is written in. It has no opinions as to what database to use or what its schema should look like. And it doesn’t require sequentially-named migration scripts or the use of any DSL other than SQL. Sqitch lets you to write SQL migration scripts that target your database, and provides a simple, unintrusive interface for specifying dependencies, so that it can run things in the proper order.

So come to this talk to learn all about Sqitch: How it works, where to get it, and how to get the most out of managing database deployments.

David Wheeler is Senior Data Architect at iovation and an associate at PGExperts. He is responsible, among other things, for PGXN, pgTAP, DesignScene, and way too many CPAN modules. He lives in Portland unless he’s traveling with his family.

As usual, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab Brew Pub.

Portland Riak "Luc Perkins & The Personal Cloud"
NedSpace on 5th

Is the siloed internet over? It's too early to tell, but personal cloud is showing tremendous promise as a counter-paradigm that holds the promise of both providing most or all of the services that we currently enjoy and doing so in a way that is vastly more consistent with more stringent understanding of privacy and consent. While there are numerous countries making slow progress on the personal cloud front, none, as far as I know, are considering Riak as a data store for personal clouds. In this talk, I'd like to make the case for Riak as being an ideal technology for this.
