Postgres innovation in 1986

Mastering PostgreSQL Indexing Techniques: Boost Your Database Performance

So Postgres innovation, let’s give some examples of this. And actually, this gentleman in the blue, I believe, is at the conference today, so just just throwing that out there. This is Joe Salco. This is actually a picture from… help me here.. Is this Prague or Tallinn? I can’t remember. Anyway, you can go down to the picture down there to see. Anyway, Joe Salco, big SQL author. And he’s obviously been excited about Postgres for many years, lives in Austin.
