PGCon 2014
The PostgreSQL Conference

Dan Langille

Dan Langille has been using FreeBSD since 1998 and almost immediately he started documenting his experiences. This online journal eventually became The FreeBSD Diary. He is very good at describing the step-by-step procedures to perform a wide variety of tasks, from changing your prompt to creating and maintaining jails.

Having studied as a software engineer, Dan has picked up sysadmin and database skills along the way. He is the founder of BSDCan, PGCon, FreshPorts, and FreshSource.

It was while working on FreshPorts that he discovered PostgreSQL and has been a keen advocate ever since.

He's a keen mountain biker and seems to thrive on deadlines.
