Postgres at any scale

Speaker(s) Craig Kerstiens

We’ll start with the basics you need to know as an app developer about interacting with your database, then dig into how you can start to analyze performance. We’ll look at things you need to know for a small application, then the things you should be cautious of as you start to layer in other items you need to be aware of for performance including:

  • Cache hit ratio
  • Index hit ratio
  • Proper use of indexes
  • Bloat
  • Efficient joins
  • Sharding

    I'd be interested in any comments Craig has about Google Cloud SQL PostgreSQL service, and how much tuning is possible. I appreciate this may be off-topic, and will understand if it can't be covered.
