Hacking on PostgreSQL

Add your feature to Postgres!

We'll cover how to write your first patch to PG, submit it for review, and profit!

Ever wished PostgreSQL had a particular capability or feature? Know a bit of C? This talk will walk you through writing a patch for PG, what needs to be modified to add an option to an existing command (grammar, execution, etc) and the major components of PG (parser, commands, memory management, etc). We'll also cover the PG style guidelines, a crash-course on using git, how to submit your patch, and the review process.
