  1. AMENDMENT Around the world with Postgres extensions


    This is a late addition to the schedule.

    Postgres continues to get more and more feature rich. But equally as impressive is the network of extensions that are growing around Postgres. With the rich extension APIs you can now add advanced functionality to Postgres without having to fork the codebase or wait for the main PostgreSQL release cycle. In this talk we’ll cover some of the basics of what an extension is and then take a tour through a variety of Postgres extensions including:

    • pgstatstatments
    • PostGIS
    • HyperLogLog and TopN Timescale
    • pg_partman
    • Citus
    • Foreign data wrappers which are their own whole class

  2. Hacking PostgreSQL


    This talk will include an introduction to the backend code and an example on hacking PG and adding in a new feature.

    We’ll cover what needs to be modified to add an option to an existing command (grammar, execution, etc) and the major components of PG (parser, commands, memory management, etc). We’ll also cover the PG style guidelines, a crash-course on using git, how to submit your patch, and the review/commitfest process.

  3. PostgreSQL Goes to 11!


    The latest and greatest version of PostgreSQL is PostgreSQL 11.

    This talk will start off with some history of the community and a description of the development process including some metrics trends. It will then cover a high level overview of the features which will be part of PostgreSQL 11, and prognosticate a bit about the future of PostgreSQL.

  4. hpr3082 :: RFC 5005 Part 1 – Paged and archived feeds? Who cares?

    An interview with two passionate RFC 5005 fans on how to handle big Atom feeds


    This conversation took almost an hour, so I split it into two shows:

    Part 1 talks mostly about the RFC itself, what it means and why.
    Part 2 goes into personal experiences with the RFC and with syndication in general, in particular in the context of web comics. This is part 1.

    The why

    When serving most RSS/Atom feed readers today, you have to choose: Do you make a complete feed with all the things you ever published, or do you make a shorter feed with just the latest entries?

    This is a trade-off with pros and cons, and it seems like a trade-off you have to make, but a solution to let your Atom feed have the cake and eat it too existed already 13 years ago, if only any of our feed readers would adhere to it: RFC 5005, Feed Paging and Archiving The what

    https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5005 was published in September 2007

    The XML namespace for RFC 5005 elements is <http://purl.org/syndication/history/1.0>, aliased as fh below.
    Section 2 defines the complete feed: It is one document (Atom file) that contains the entire set the feed describes. The document is marked with an fh:complete element.
    Section 3 defines the paged feed: It is a series of documents connected with Atom link elements with rel set to the link relations first, last, previous or next.
    Section 4 defines the archived feed: It has a subscription document that may change at any time, and a series of archive documents that are expected to have stable contents and URIs. The link relations defined are current, prev-archive and next-archive. The semantics are clearer: prev-archive refers to previously published entries, and because the contents are stable you can stop when you see a URI to a document you already have. Archive documents are marked with the fh:archive element.

    The who

    In this show I’m talking to: fluffy

    Federated social web:
    Writes and makes things in several creative fields:
    Publ is like a static site generator, but dynamic. It produces RFC 5005 archive feeds, of course:
    Thoughts on ephemeral content vs content worth archiving and how they relate to protocols:


    Federated social web:
    Made a prototype full-history reader that follows RFC 5005 links:
    Made a webcomic reader mostly mentioned in Part 2:
    Made a WordPress plugin implementing RFC 5005:
    Made an RFC 5005 archive feed synthesizer for sites with a predictable post frequency and URL structure:
    Hosted at <https://fh.minilop.net/>
    Was on HPR 9 years ago, talking about Xorg!

    Conversation notes

    Google Reader was terminated 2013-07-01, all subscription data permanently gone on 2013-07-15:
    Mastodon had Atom feeds with paging, but the feeds went away when OStatus went away:
    HTML4 does indeed define the HTML link relations:
    It has prev rather than the previous of RFC 5005, but mentions that some browsers support previous as an alias.
    HTML5 also defines the HTML link relations:
    Here previous is a lower-case must for historical reasons.
    IANA manages the Registry of Link Relations:
    It references RFC 5005 for the Section 4 relations, but not the Section 3 ones.
    RFC 5005 singles out its own Section 3 (Paged Feeds) as the best-effort, loose, discouraged model.
        Section 3:
            Therefore, clients SHOULD NOT present paged feeds as coherent or complete, or make assumptions to that effect.
        Section 4:
            Unlike paged feeds, archived feeds enable clients to do this without losing entries.
    I’m confused about it in the show, but the RFC is clear that an archived feed has one dynamic subscription document, which points to a chain of immutable archive documents.
    Back in 2002, Aaron Swartz published his joke MIME-header-based RSS 3:
    The cultural context at the time and the rivalry between RSS 0.91+, RSS 1.0, RSS 2.0 and Atom deserves a show of its own.

  5. Why it’s time to stop worrying about the decline of the English language – podcast | News | The Guardian

    People often complain that English is deteriorating under the influence of new technology, adolescent fads and loose grammar. Why does this nonsensical belief persist?
