Growing up new PostgreSQL developers

On teaching students, team leading, project management and stuff

One doesn't simply hire a RDBMs developer. There are not many RDBMs developers in the world and even less of them are looking for a job. Instead of looking for developers we can grow them up. In this talk we would like to tell how we do it.

In this talk:

  • First-person view: PostgreSQL developer as a first job & contributing to PostgreSQL after years of experience in different area - impressions, difficulties, etc;
  • Our experience of teaching Moscow State University students;
  • Onboarding & team leading gotchas;
  • Project management gotchas;
  • On burning out;
  • And stuff like this :)
