Lot’s of interesting talks! The fact that this year I am not alone at the conference, that I have a team – helps a lot! We coordinate between the three of us, which talks we want to attend. Otherwise I don’t know how I would manage! Yes, you can read about the new features of Postgres 11 online, but it is way more interesting to listen to the people who made it happen. Also, I am always looking for people who are solving similar problems as we do, like dealing with incorporating time into data, improving the speed of the data load, and finding efficient ways to connect to external systems.
I was able to catch up with many people whom I knew from the previous conferences, and met lots of new interesting people. And there is still a whole day of the conference ahead, I will try again to listen to as many of the presentations as I can.
