PostgreSQL Community Panel: Upgradability

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

An open discussion with Postgres community members around the topic of upgradability. We will be looking at the PostgreSQL development cycle (backward compatibility, addition of new features) and why it makes sense to upgrade Postgres regularly. Also, why minor release upgrades just work, and what to test when performing a major version upgrade. Finally we will examine what works great or better than other database systems, but also some pain points and what could be improved in future releases.
