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!

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.

Again, we'll be meeting for technical discussion and a lot more. So far, this is what is on the agenda. We'll start this meetup off with a presentation on Git, pair programming, and code katas and koans with .NET. The presentation will cover what these things are, how they're implemented, and what the best usage and benefit of each is. TDD/BDD Pair

Programming Session! Ever wanted to pair program? Wanted to learn about ping pong style, promiscuous pair programming or some other style? Well after the presentation, for those interested bring a laptop with Visual Studio 2010 with the latest services packs and MVC tools and we'll be stepping through exactly what these techniques are and how they're implemented with the .NET stack (and a few open source components too).

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.

COPIOUSLabs TechTalk: MongoDB
COPIOUS

COPIOUS is a user-centered digital experience agency. We build digital products with the user at heart and technology in our bones. We recently moved to a new office and now have a large space to host our TechTalks.

About TechTalks:

COPIOUSLabs TechTalks series meets every other Friday at 1pm at the COPIOUS offices. Our talks span artificial intelligence, new programming languages and techniques, computational linguistics, geographic data processing, systems and software architecture, augmented reality, network security, and more as proposed to the Copious engineering team.

About this talk:

Speaker: Andrew Gauger, Systems Engineer, Rejuvenation

MongoDB allows for abstracted data storage, so Andrew will talk about implementations of this flexible data design pattern. State machine and its ability to extend a document asynchronously gets highlighted. We will talk about data abstraction, and how to abstract structured data into a schema-less logger to perform validation.

In this TechTalk, Andrew will aim to describe clustering and replication as well as referencing and embedding in a simple language. The samples come fast but keep to explaining a simple topic. The talk diverges about how distributed database technology can be brought to firmware, how massive quantity small computing instances best leverage this technology, and what frameworks exist to leverage MongoDB on an upcoming project.

All are welcome to attend. If you have a talk that you'd like to suggest presenting, please email it to [email protected] along with a brief outline of what you'd like to cover.
