Conference Schedule - PGCon 2022

I love them, you'll love them: the connection strings!

Date: 2022-05-27
Time: 13:15 - 14:15
Room: Stream 3
Level: Beginner

PostgreSQL allows you to use a connection string to describe how to connect to your database. Well, you might have already known that... But do you know that depending on who wrote the different PostgreSQL client applications provided in the client package, you will need to use a different syntax?

After explaining what are connection strings and why you really need them, we'll explain how to use them with every PostgreSQL client application so everyone can conclude it doesn't make sense. Then, we'll try to explore how we could make it better for Postgres>16!
