Portland Linux/Unix Group: What's new in PostgreSQL 9.5
PSU Maseeh Engineering Building

Who: Josh Berkus
What: What's new in PostgreSQL 9.5
Where: PSU, 1930 SW 4th Ave. Room FAB 86-01 (Lower Level)
When: Thursday, April 7th, 2016 at 7pm
Why: The pursuit of technology freedom
Stream: (PSU WiFi Permitting)

PostgreSQL 9.5 has many new and cool features for database users, making the venerable RDBMS suitable for even more workloads. Among them are:

  • UPSERT for high-concurrency insert/update operations
  • Row Level Security, integrated with SELinux, for ultimate data security
  • CUBE and ROLLUP for sophisticated analytics
  • FDW partitioning for data federation
  • BRIN indexes for big data
  • More JSON goodness

PostgreSQL Core Team member Josh Berkus will take you on a tour of the new features, including demos of many of them, and field questions about PostgreSQL in general.

About Josh

Josh Berkus is on the Core Team of the PostgreSQL Project, and was a professional database geek for 18 years. Today, he works for Red Hat as the community lead for Project Atomic, which means he's all about the containers. He has used a Linux desktop since 2001.

CNPDX May: Service Mesh and Service Broker
WeWork Pioneer Place

RSVP Required see RSVP instructions below!

May is all about SERVICES! Particularly, Service Meshes and the Open Service Broker.

First Talk: An introduction to Conduit, the Rust-based service mesh for Kubernetes

The creators of the CNCF-hosted Linkerd service mesh, Buoyant, recently introduced Conduit--a new, ultralight service mesh made explicitly for Kubernetes. In this talk, Buoyant engineer Carl Lerche will introduce you to Conduit, its design philosophy, how it’s used to add reliability, security, and visibility to Kubernetes applications, our motivations for writing the Conduit data plane in Rust, and how to get involved.

Second Talk: Stateful is Hard: Hooking Apps up to Managed DBs

Kubernetes lets us write crazy-powerful apps these days, and all three clouds will host it for you in some shape or form now. The result is that our apps are mostly portable, but there's more work to do in this space. Aaron Schlesinger of the Microsoft Azure Containers group explains.

Databases are hard to maintain if you run them in Kubernetes. Same with pub/sub systems, or any combination of stateful and data really. Sometimes we just want to hook our apps up to the cloud equivalents of these things, so we don't have to manage them. How do we do that in a portable way? Enter the Open Service Broker (OSB) API and Kubernetes Service Catalog.

Learn how to connect your apps to all your favorite cloud services without ever opening the portal or using the CLI. It's the same OSB API for all the clouds, and the same Kubernetes Service Catalog resources for any cluster. We're getting to a place where you can get the services you need without caring what cloud your app runs on.

RSVP Required for this venue. Either RSVP via (preferred), or send email to josh(at)berkus(dot)org with your full name that matches your ID. All RSVPs must be received by 4pm May 16th.

CNPDX Sept: Cloud-Native Databases with TiDB

For an opening act, CNPDX organizer Josh Berkus will demo a walk-through of deploying high availability PostgreSQL as an application on Kubernetes.

Our main event will be:

Deploying TiDB, a distributed open-source MySQL-Compatible HTAP Database, using Kubernetes

This talk will introduce TiDB's architecture, key use cases, a user story with Mobike (one of the largest bikesharing platforms in the world), and a deep-dive into deploying TiDB as a stateful application using Kubernetes. TiDB is built by the company PingCAP and its open-source community.

Speakers: Ed Huang (co-founder/CTO of PingCAP), Kevin Xu (GM of U.S. at PingCAP)

As a special bonus for this meetup, TiDB will hold a business card raffle for a Google Home Mini at the end of the presentation.

Our meetup host this month will be software maker Eleven.

PLEASE RSVP on if you can, so that we can get a headcount for food.

ReactJs + Fireproof Workshop! Streamline App Development with a Local-First Database
UpStart Collective

Streamline your app development with a local-first database.
In this workshop we'll build a React app together, implementing basic data models in Fireproof, with automatic sync across devices using PartyKit. Once the basics are in place, we can explore using Fireproof in specific use cases, whether it's encrypted content management or offline inventory controls. We have a handful of starter kits you can use to fast-forward to working LLM chatbots, content editors, file uploads, etc.

Workshop participants should be familiar with Node.js and NPM or Yarn, React, and Git. We'll be working in VS Code but you can use whatever editor you prefer.

Space is limited, RSVP early and remember to bring your laptop!
