The rise of PostgreSQL in the enterprise is paralleled by the rapid growth and acceptance of Cloud services, non-relational data stores, and highly scalable, distributed architecture. It is fortunate that just as we see increased attention on open source solutions, the community has gained a truly staggering number of core features and extensions. Phil loves to help people design healthy, modern, data-centric applications built squarely on PostgreSQL. The data landscape has expanded considerably in the last decade, but the value of relational data has never been clearer.
Phil can be found extolling the virtues of the world's most advanced open source database as a member of pgMKE: the Milwaukee Postgres User's Group. He has presented talks for several conferences, including pgOpen, and Postgres Conf, Ohio.
