2019 February 21 Meeting

Mark Wong
Note: Back to third Thursday this month!

Location:

PSU Business Accelerator
2828 SW Corbett Ave · Portland, OR
Parking is open after 5pm.

Speaker: Paul Jungwirth

Temporal databases let you record history: either a history of the
database (what the table used to say), a history of the thing itself
(what it used to be), or both at once. The theory of temporal databases
goes back to the 90s, but standardization has only just begun with some
modest recommendations in SQL:2011, and database products (including
Postgres) are still missing major functionality.

This talk will cover how temporal tables are structured, how they are
queried and updated, what SQL:2011 offers (and doesn't), what
functionality Postgres has already, and what remains to be built.

Paul started programming on a Tandy 1000 at age 8 and hasn't been able
to stop since. He helped build one of the Mac's first web servers in
1994 and has founded software companies in politics and technical
hiring. He works as an independent consultant specializing in Rails,
Postgres, and Chef.
