Episode 27 - Andrew Atkinson
PostgreSQL wizard Andrew Atkinson joins the show to discuss his new book, "High-Performance PostgreSQL for Rails." Andrew talks about the challenges of writing a database book for Rails developers, refactoring prose, and the importance of maintaining a work-book-life balance. With his multiple fantastic talks on the subject of PostgreSQL, it's no surprise that he possesses a ton of knowledge to share. I'm genuinely delighted that I had the opportunity to have him on the show, and I'm incredibly excited for the book's upcoming release.Links:@andatki on Twitterandatki.bsky.social on Blueskyandyatkinson on GitHubandyatkinson.comHigh-Performance PostgreSQL for RailsPGSQL Phriday #001 — Query Stats, Log Tags, and N+1sCome hang with me at Rocky Mountain RubyOctober 5th and 6th, 2023A two day, single track conference in the heart of Boulder, Colorado.Tickets are now on sale!
