First of all, a big THANK YOU to everybody who reached out congratulating me for becoming a finalist in the “Technologist of the Year” nomination. This nomination is especially important for me, because I’ve always strived to apply the best CS theories for the success of the business. I do not believe in approaches, which can’t be used in practice. However, I think that applying the right theoretical principles in the industry can have a tremendous impact.
Another aspect important to me is that all my innovations are related to PostgreSQL. If I were asked to name the three most important things which I’ve introduced at Braviant Holdings, it would be
- The wide usage of FDW both in OLAP and OLTP
- The usage of pg_bitemporal in both OLAP and OLTP
- Abandoning ORM and using JSON -based data exchange between applications and databases
There is more in my blog about all of the above, but what I want to point now – each of these Top 3 is about using PostgreSQL in an innovative way.
The award descriptions say:
Presented to the individual whose talent has championed true innovation, either through new applications of existing technology or the development of technology to achieve a truly unique product or service.
Isn’t it precisely what I just said :)? Do I want to win? Absolutely! Do I think I can win? Yes! Can you help me :)?…
Several people reach out to me, telling me that they have difficulties casting their votes. I agree that the voting process is at least contra-intuitive. So let me explain it step by step.
First, you go to that link.
Then, click where it is said to CREATE LOGIN. It says that you can login with your Facebook account, but this does not work. So you will need to create a login. After that, you need to click on the large grey “Like” on the very top. Wait for a response to make sure your vote is counted.
Also, there are SHARE buttons, and unfortunately, the most important one – Share on LinkedIn – does not work. Others work fine, so you can help me by sharing with your network 🙂
And one more thing – this voting is only opened till August 16, so please don’t delay 🙂
Once again – THANK YOU!
