Could you briefly introduce yourself?

Hello. My name is Alexey. I am Software Architect at Railsware company and Podcaster. I made open-source books about Chef ("Cooking Infrastructure by Chef", DevOps tool) and PostgreSQL ("Setting up and scaling of PostgreSQL", Russian language).

Have you enjoyed previous conferences, either as attendee or as speaker?

Previous conferences was very good. I attended past conferences as a attendee and after that decided to try to make my own talk.

What will your talk be about, exactly? Why this topic?

My talk called "Supercharge your PostgreSQL with extensions". PostgreSQL is very powerful database, and extensions allow to make it very flexible for various tasks. I am very like this ability in it.

What is the audience for your talk?

My talk is mostly for beginners and maybe intermediate audience (I am not PostgreSQL "guru", just use this database every day). This talk will show some very useful extensions for developers and devops.

What existing knowledge should the attendee have?

Just know little SQL and what is PostgreSQL.
